Russian bath on Petropavlovskaya 52 – review and impression of the visit.
In Kiev there are a lot of different baths and saunas. I personally prefer to steam in Russian baths, that is, where there is wet steam, you can pour soda on the stones, there is a pool. The category of "Russian bath" includes a bath in Kiev on Petropavlovskaya Street, 52.
There is a Russian bath in the Podolsky district of kiev in the private sector. Therefore, this is a classic Russian bath, where the steam room is heated with wood. The coarse is right in the steam room, so you toss the wood yourself.
The sauna is big! It has 8 wooden chairs with a table, a bar counter. In the steam room can steam 2-4 people. In fact, it is optimal to go here in ten. Just 8 people drink beer, and 2 steam. In the sauna on Petropavlovskaya there is also a swimming pool and 2 showers. And as an added bonus, there is a veranda outside where you can cook kebabs :-).
Review of the Russian bath on Petropavlovskaya 52:
To be honest, I liked it there. The temperature is good, you can pour water, a good pool with cold water. Nice room to sit for a drink of tea (beer). In a word, there is a great rest and steam room. Of the minuses can be noted the lack of a room with a bed :-), there is only a massage room. But if you go to the Russian bath, then you should not need a room with a bed there, this is a bath and not a sauna :-).
The broom could be bought directly in the bath, the price for it is slightly higher than on the market. Beer, water can be taken with you. It is also better to take towels and slippers with you, otherwise you will have to pay extra for them. By the number of people you can take with you, it is better to clarify by phone with the administrator, it may well be that you will have to pay extra for more than 8 people.
At the price, at the beginning of 2011 it was 200 hryvnia per hour. If you break this amount into 10 people, then it will come out to 20 hryvnia. It is better to order 2-3 hours, then you can have a great rest and improve your health in the bath.
How to get to the Russian bath on Petropavlovskaya 52
There is a sauna between the metro station Petrovka and Dorogozhychi. You can get to it by trolleybus or minibus that run between Dorogozhychi and Petrovka. The stop where to get off is called "Gas station". From it you need to walk 10 minutes to the bath.
Even a minibus goes along Petropavlovskaya Street, but I did not remember its number.
