Russian & Turkish Baths Reviews
Quick two hour visit with wife. It isn’t a luxury spa. We’ve been here a few times and will continue. Nice bare bones old fashion Banya. Locker facilities are limited. Saunas are hot with... more »
Incredible, rich, and authentic experience. My mind was alive and focused after the combo of hot and cold. The steam or sauna rooms then the cold pool....that will get you right and create a memory. People watching was on another level, but respect the traditions. The place is famous for all the right reasons. It's that good and worth the price. I wish it was closer to home:(
Really old...really Russian... and really hot. The brothers Boris and David that own the place are reportedly feuding - so memberships and ticket packages (Boris or David) are good only alternate weeks. It ain't fancy, and (unlike some other bathhouses) never was. Call it authentic, then, and go for the communal good vibes and hearty Slavic soups. I love the place.
