Built in the 1980s in a modernistic Soviet style, this is perhaps the finest bathhouse in Central Asia. If you fancy trying a traditional bathhouse experience, go with a friend or two and you’ll find the routine easy to pick up. Choose from Russian-Finnish or oriental baths, each with men’s and women’s sections. There's an attached detox and spa centre.

Private rooms for four to six people (6000T to 10,000T) are also available. Stalls in the lobby sell soap, towels, flip-flops and veniki (bunches of oak and birch leaves for lashing yourself to stimulate the circulation). All sorts of massages are on offer too.
