Russian Dry Cedar Sauna is a traditional type of bathing in the Eastern Europe. Russian villagers built 'banias' near their houses. First and foremost banyas were used as bathrooms. But even after usual bathrooms appeared and spread throughout the whole Russia people still were using banyas constantly.

The process is simple: the water is poured on rocks in order to receive the high temperature dry steam to get a good purifying sweat. You can include broom bathing into your sauna process, which is also a traditional way of bathing. It has several very positive effects on the human body improving the blood circulation also softening and moisturizing the skin due to high temperatures and humidity in the steam room.

Turkish sauna

Turkish Wet Stone Sauna also has a long history. Turkish sultans used it for themselves and it was obligatory for their numerous wives to use Turkish Sauna once in a while.

Turkish steam-room is very humid and unlike the Russian sauna there is water everywhere. Turkish Sauna is peculiar because of the process of bathing. Usually you go through the massage along with bathing. Nothing is compared to the feeling after the Turkish Sauna as you feel very clean in body and the soul.

I love coming here to relax. Come here, hit the wet or dry sauna, cold plunge, relax and have a nice lunch, and just hang out. I'd recommend the pierogi, and a beer. Then back to the saunas. I always leave feeling great.
