Larger Banyas are also used for gathering. Today there are different types: expensive Banyas such as one on video clip below and a standard Banya for a single family that most families would have. We have a standard Banya on our "Dacha". I usually would go to Banya in colder months of the year once a week or once a fortnight. Many people go to Banyas in summer. Banyas are still very popular in Russia. There is a TV program that talks everything related to Banya.
You are so lucky that you go to Banya very often! I adore Banya but i can go there only when I come to the village to my friends and this is so far from me. Usually I do that in summer
