Full description
Visiting a banya is an integral part of Russian culture. Russians have come to these saunas to relax and unwind for more than 1,000 years. On this tour, you can discover a banya for yourself. 

The tour begins with a pick-up from VDNKh metro station in a classic Soviet van. Travel with your group members to Sergiyev Posad, where you will be taken to visit the famous Trinity Lavra of Saint Sergius monastery - known as the greatest and largest in Russia. Be in awe of its blue cupolas decorated with golden stars. 

Finally, stop at a traditional wooden banya by a beautiful lake and be guided through a 3-hour banya session and learn about this important part of Russian culture. Be treated to a Russian skin scrub treatment with a veniki - a kind of broom used in therapeutic practices. You have the option to dive into the lake after your treatment, then dry off before enjoying a wonderful 3-course dinner, full of local specialities.

The monastery is one of the things that you cannot miss during a holiday in Moscow. In the same way, a sauna made as Russian tradition cannot leave out. In a very characteristic environment you can take part in this fantastic ritual led by an exceptional trained staff who have traditions at heart. Highly recommended dinner also characteristic.

The trip was an absolute hit on our trip to Moscow! Sergei brought us very close to Russia and its traditions and was always very helpful. His English was perfect (which was very rare in Russia) and small requests were no problem at all. Too bad we only booked an excursion with him!
