Banya No.1 etiquette

Private Banya hire with organic treatments

Recommendations for your visit to Banya No.1

  • Use the wristband to secure your belongings in a locker and then, covering yourself in a towel, head to the banya/ wet area.
  • Put on a felt hat to prevent overheating and then enter the steam room for no more than 10 minutes on the first go. Seat or lay down on your towel.
  • Afterwards, take a luke-warm or cool shower and head to the lounge area where staff will show you your table. Relax, cool down and re-hydrate.
  • Over the course of your session our therapists will invite you to your first treatments.
  • Repeat the 10-minute visits to the steam room with 20-30 minute breaks in between.
  • Do not overdo it.
  • After your 2nd visit it is the right time for a splash of refreshing cold water from the buckets or an electrifying and invigorating dip in the icy cold plunge pool (please take a shower before).
  • After your treatments, you can order and enjoy traditional Russian food and drinks.
