Welcome to the Russian Banya
Traditions and culture to the world

A Banya is a room or a building designed as a place where a large amount of hot steam is created with the help of water and hot air. The steam and high heat make the bathers perspire.
The Banya can be heated with firewood, gas and electric heat as well.
The temperature is between 60 and 80 degrees Celsius and the humidity is around 60% and 40%, different from the sauna that is dry and has a temperature of 80-100 degrees Celsius.
This specific climate allows the use of different herbs and treatments with many benefits for the health, this is the reason for a famous Russian proverb "The day you spend in the banya is the day you do not age."
