Do you want to discover one of the most authentic Russian place? I will take you to the local banya house! We will meet at the Vladimirskaya metro station entrance, near the monument of F. Dostoevsky and then we will go to the local banya house where tourists dont usually go! There you will choose the whisk, or VENIK at first which is the main thing and the most distinctive feature of any Russian banya. Then you will learn how to prepare it for the main procedure – the whisking in the steam room called PARILKA. Oh, it’s real magic and all the magic secrets of the best whisking will be revealed to you! Don’t worry if you feel that the PARILKA is too hot for you – there you can choose a cooler place to enjoy the whisking. After every session in the steam room you will have to cool off either in a specially designed relaxation room or in the tub or reservoir full of cool or cold water. You will feel how changing the temperatures will affect your body and mind. I will teach you different traditional banya procedures which are considered to be healing and curative ones. After all banya activities your mind will be at rest and you will feel like your body is smiling! If you have a big group of people (4 or more), we can discuss a discount

We will meet at the entrace of the Vladimirskaya metro station. At the monument of F. Dostoevsky. In a Russian banya you have to be naked in a steam section, thus we have separate sections for men and women . For females I organize this experience in a female section, for mixed groups we go to a private section and wear suimming-suits. If you have a big group of people (4 or more), we can discuss a discount.
