Some people are hate bars and clubs, one doesn't like loud music. We are always glad to offer an alternative. Though we have many different gay spots in Moscow, but the best one definitely is a sauna.

Unlike its Western counterparts, Russian gay saunas and bathhouses have not been conceived with the exclusive purpose of facilitating anonymous sex encounters. You will be disappointed if you expect to find usual lines of private rooms with doors invitingly left ajar. The sex action is much more discreet in Russian gay saunas, it is ok to cruise others in showers or the steam-room, but the actual intercourse takes place either in the darkroom, a locked private rooms rented by the hour, or elsewhere, outside of the sauna. However, now there is a notable exception to these rules - the Mayakovska Sport sauna (see below).


Let's start to observe Moscow gay saunas:


Gay-owned and gay-operated, same management as the famous the Central Station gay club. Over 6000 sq. ft.
