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.
