    The hot sauna is best in town, do not miss cold plunge on the way out, make sure to cool down well before going back into the hot sauna. Wear a hat, it makes a big difference.

    Banya 5's tasteful, modern Russian and Turkish sauna offers visitors an opportunity to relax in both ambient and water-based steam room therapies. Relax and cool down after work, but it does get busy. Read more

    Skip from a 220-degree sauna room to a pool of chilly 45-degree water, get whacked by a bundle of leafy, aromatic branches in a traditional venik massage, end with vodka shots in the on-site lounge. Read more

    Take a plastic bottle for liquids....The iced teas and lemon water are groovy while cooking..Ask Caittania about the best days to go...

    Go from the epically hot sauna & jump into the ice pool. It's beyond invigorating.

    Plan to go for at least a few hours to get the most out of your experience. If you do that you will leave drained and totally relaxed.
