If you’re looking for a more private and peaceful banya experience, the Petite Banya is the place for you. You’ll still want to use the authentic venik, bunches of fragrant birch and oak tree twigs, to gently massage your skin and increase circulation, but we ask you to be mindful of those around you and keep conversations more muted here than in the Grand Banya.
How to use
Before entering the banya, please have a quick shower. We recommend starting with a 5-10 minute session, followed by a cold bucket shower. The second session is when you’ll want to use the venik (hit yourself or get someone else to do it!). Then enjoy a cooling off period – you’ve earned it!
