The iconic Russian ‘Banya’ – this century old tradition not only presents a form of wellness, its rather a way of life. For the locals it’s a place to communicate, bring people closer together and share their beliefs. Whether you seek for inspiration or just want to relieve stress – as part of an authentic experience, a visit to the Russian sauna is a must when visiting the country.

Russian Banya


Now, after you’ve found out a little about the Russian ‘Banya’ you might wonder – How does this truly unique procedure actually take place? Let’s clarify a few of the most important ‘Banya’ terms first!

The so called ‘Banshchik’ is your personal guide and will lead you through the sauna experience.
A little broom made out of birch, oak or eucalyptus tree twigs is called ‘Venik’. ‘Parenie’ means steaming – therefore the ‘Parilka’ is the ‘steaming room’.
Before entering the ‘Parilka’ you’re supposed to fully undress, soak your ‘Venik’ in hot water and take a shower. Then your ‘Banshchik’ will accompany you to the steam room where you lay down on a shelf while the ‘Banshchik’ gets the humidity and temperature going by pouring water onto hot stones. After a while you’ll start sweating all over your body and the heat will become hard to bear – then it’s time to leave the steam room and cool off in the snow or ice-cold water. Usually you take several trips to the ‘Parilka’ and back before using the ‘venik’. The ‘Banshchik’ will gently beat you with the ‘Venik’ to increase the blood flow and promote detoxication. The essential oils release their aroma and are very beneficial for your skin and health.
