Russian banya comes to New York! The Russian & Turkish Baths in the East Village is an institution. Built in 1892, the authentic Russian bathhouse offers five different steam and sauna options ranging in temperature, including an oven-heated granite sauna, a Finnish cherry-wood sauna, and an aromatic white-tiled Turkish steam room, as well as an icy plunge pool and roof deck.
Don’t come expecting glitz and glamor, but this is the real Russian bathhouse experience. You bring: yourself, a bathing suit, and a sense of adventure. They provide: robes, towels, shorts, slippers, and lockers with locks.
