Russian Banya in Winter

Have you ever seen people swimming? It’s not that surprising. Have you seen people «swimming» in snow? That’s what my new YouTube video is about!

Russians, as well as Finns and other northern nations, love to take a steam bath. Whether it’s +20°C or -40°C outside, it’s always a perfect time for banya (Russian sauna).

First time I tried banya was 12 years ago and since that time I’m waiting for winter to come as a little girl. This winter I indulged in steaming in Russian banya and wallow in snow and douse in ice water later!
