Russian Bath Experience in Sanduny Baths with Pickup Service

1. Russian Bath Experience in Sanduny Baths with Pickup Service

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."

Rest your body and soul in the oldest surviving banya complex in Russia. Opened in 1808, the baths are still in the original building in the heart of Moscow and remains a favorite venue of the Russian aristocracy. Marvel at Sanduny's architecture, which includes everything from Baroque columns, ancient Roman pools and Turkish baths.  Russians don't only use banya to wash, it is an important ritual believed to "free the body of any illnesses and clear the soul". Today, banya is an important part of Russian culture and heritage. Aside from being one of the best ways to unwind and relax, steaming is also proven to have numerous health benefits.
