I was excited to try out the baths but was disappointed because I felt my lack of Russian kept me from fully enjoying it. A nice women that spoke some English introduced me to where to sit and a short tour of the sauna and washroom. But then she disappeared. I saw other women enjoying teas and salads but I... More

I opted for the 1st class experience my last morning in Moscow. The pictures I had seen may be for the VIP area only- not sure- but it didn't matter, as I just wanted to be in a banya for the first time and relax. My limited Russian did prove useful, and I brought my own sandals to avoid paying... More

As the city's oldest and most exclusive bathhouse, the 19th-century Sanduny Banya has rejuvenated everyone from dramatist Anton Chehkov to billionaire tycoon Roman Abramovich in it's time.

I used to go to Sanduni every Saturday when I lived in Moscow. The sauna is one of the best I have been to. Also the food is very nice. One of the best Hatshapuris in Moscow.

I've been going to Sanduny for about 5 years and live a short stroll so it is super convenient. Just before Christmas, a mate and I went for banya at around 10am one Saturday morning. Took ticket and went downstairs. Waited 8mins for a place to become available. Nuded up, ordered a beer and went for steam. Being cleaned (it... More

I went with a friend who has been living in Moscow for many years and the whole experience has been fantastic. It's a must do as even though the steam is VERY hot, the dip in freezing water and the swim in the nice pool is indeed relaxing. I would definitely come back.

First off you can't be body conscious and have to be open-minded to indulge here. A little rudimentary Russian helps but all the services are offered in an English menu. To cut costs bring you own spa gear. If you aren't into getting caressed by birch leaves (I wasn't. Go for the naked most - scrub). I spent 2700 rubles-... More

This place is gold!!! The staff were really friendly.. and tryed there hardest to help me and my cousin to properly experience the sauna and bathing room. .. the place has been running since 1808 so it is a must if you are in moscow and looking to try an old tradition!!!

I was taken here by a russian friend.This is essential to enjoy completely the whole experience. The combination of the 'bath', food and drink, and talk is a winning combination for a true russian experience. The all purpose is to relax and socialize. The sauna will be very hot for non russian but then the cold dive on the pool... More
