A Banya is a staple all over Russia because of the health benefits. Banyas come in all shapes and sizes, from being a smaller stand-alone house to large group facilities. A Banya is place to go to relax and socialize, many times food is brought because many people will stay all day. Despite the desired tranquility, this particular Banya has a hammer and sickle instead of one of the letters. This means that even this place which should have been secluded from politics is yet another opportunity to recruit and convert followers into the new regime.
