Full description
Visiting a banya is an integral part of Russian culture. Russians have come to these saunas to relax and unwind for more than 1,000 years. On this tour, you can discover a banya for yourself. 

The tour begins with a pick-up from VDNKh metro station in a classic Soviet van. Travel with your group members to Sergiyev Posad, where you will be taken to visit the famous Trinity Lavra of Saint Sergius monastery - known as the greatest and largest in Russia. Be in awe of its blue cupolas decorated with golden stars. 

Finally, stop at a traditional wooden banya by a beautiful lake and be guided through a 3-hour banya session and learn about this important part of Russian culture. Be treated to a Russian skin scrub treatment with a veniki - a kind of broom used in therapeutic practices. You have the option to dive into the lake after your treatment, then dry off before enjoying a wonderful 3-course dinner, full of local specialities.
