This traditional Spa procedure, which is called banya, is an unforgettable experience and a very interesting part of your acquaintance with Ukraine. From the old ages banya is considered to be not only one of best cleaning procedures, it was an excellent way to clean the whole body and get an extra energy.
Today banya is more like an entertainment activity rather than a part of life for most Ukrainians. There is a special ceremony of going to banya for several hours, relaxing with a cup of tea (couple of beers) afterwards. Visiting banya is a unique opportunity to feel the old tradition which survived till our days.
