The Russian bath is mentioned in the records of 10th-12th centuries. It was called “movnya”, “mivnya” or simply “banya”. The structure of the Russian bath is significantly different from the Roman «term», and the Turkish «hammam» – the Russian bath was always built of wood and was devoid of all luxury. The bathhouse had only two rooms – a waiting room, where it was possible to change clothes and rest between entering the steam room, and the steam room. The furnace was heated with firewood, on which stones were laid, for which it received its name – “Kamenka” (Stone in Russian: «Kamen»).
For a long time, it was believed that you should not go to the bath immediately after a meal, you should wait 3-4 hours. While relaxing in the bath you can eat vegetables or fruits. For a long time, bath drinks include kvass, mors, natural juice and herbal tea. You cannot drink alcohol in the bath.
