What you'll do

Experiencing banya is part of experiencing Russia. This traditional and very warm sauna has been part of Russian culture for over 1,000 years! We invite you to discover it in a complete and fun excursion.

We will pick you up at the VDNKh metro station with our classic Soviet van en route to Sergiyev Posad. There, we will visit the famous “Trinity Lavra of Saint Sergius” monastery, known as the greatest and largest in Russia. You will be surprised by its blue cupolas covered with golden stars.

Further, we will stop at a traditional wooden banya by the lake. There, we will guide you through 3-hour banya session as the locals do. It will include a Russian skin scrub treatment (with veniki), dive in the lake (frozen in winter), and a 3-course dinner full of local specialties.

Enjoy the relaxation and the promised good night of sleep!
