7 Forbidden Things-to-Do in Russian Banya

Banya (sauna) for Russians is like a cult. It is able to regenerate human again, to give strength for new exploits. Don't go there after midnight If you think that a banya is as an uninhabited island, you are mistaken. For centuries there lives so-called Bannik - a banya master. This creature likes when everyone
please him in every way: leave a bar of soap, for example, or water in a pitcher - Bannik also wants to wash. He prefers steaming strongly after midnight. If you also have such a "wonderful" idea, beware - Bannik will crush you. Simply to say, it will intoxicate your desperate little head.

The Brightest Town in Russia

One of the most remote cities in that vast country, the capital of the sparsely populated Russian region. Quite a few people live in Anadyr, just 15,000. This even for the district center in the middle lane is not enough. But not for Chukotka where just 50000 people live. To tell the truth, fly to Chukotka for just looking at Anadyr is not worth it. There are only a few streets
that you completely bypass a couple of hours. Still, one need to fly and change to a helicopter or ship, go on a visit to the Chukchi and deer.
