    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

    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.

    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.

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