Full description
As you enter the building you will be astounded by the mosaics and the frescos in the hallway leading to the changing rooms. As you go up the intricate staircase, you will enter the changing rooms. Besides being subdivided by gender between women and men, they are also subdivided into three classes for men and two for women.  Once you get yourself situated, change into the appropriate clothing and enjoy the experience in going into a hot steam room, heated by wood just as hundreds years ago. Dip in to the waters of a cold pool surrounded with frescos. Use a fragrant bundle of twigs called a besom (or venik) briskly all over your body – this way epitomizing your Russian Experience. A Russian proverb perfectly summarizes the health benefits of the banya, literally translating to mean "the day you spend in the banya is the day you do not age."
