Icy sauna

Posted on March 9, 2010 by


ice sauna 3This building of ice blocks appears in Baikalsk for the third time. Baikalsk is a small town not far from Irkutsk on the southern bank of the Baikal Lake. Winters are long and severe here. This allows to build anything from ice and it will stand for a long time. But it's hard to imagine two incompatible things together - ice walls and 120 Celsius degrees heat inside a sauna. But it's true. Water-boiling temperatures are divided from freezing ice only with a 1-inch-thick partition.

    we were there a day before yesterday.
    that guy says if he doesn’t find any sponsor for the next year he won’t build it anymore. the sauna is quite expensive and doesn’t pay for itself.
    so if you know any ethusiast, don’t hesitate to help that good Siberian :)

    I don’t agree with everything in this summary, but you do make some very good points. I’m very interested in this subject matter and I myself do alot of research as well. Either way it was a well thoughtout and nice read so I figured I would leave you a comment. Feel free to check out my website sometime and let me know what you think.
