A conventional Russian sauna, or banya, is ordinarily a wooden structure including a few rooms – a section room, wash room and steam room. The passage room fills in as a social affair place with a table and seats for resting and getting a charge out of chilly brew and bites between outings into the steam room.

Banya temperatures regularly will surpass 93 degrees Celsius (199 °F) and unique felt caps are commonly worn to shield the head from this extraordinary warmth. A few customers like to sit on a little tangle brought into the banya to shield uncovered skin from the dry, hot wood of the inside seats.

Russian Bath on Neck Road
The banya is said to have many health benefits. Excessive heat stimulates sweating, thus removing unwanted materials from the blood and improving the work of the kidneys. Sweating releases excess water and salt from the body and opens the skin pores, cleaning it and making it softer and fresher. The process helps rid the muscles of excess lactic acid which reliefs muscle fatigue and soreness. Come to our Russian Bath House located in Brooklyn NY and see how great you can feel once you experience the Banya.
