The name of this place refers to its location, tucked into the second courtyard behind an apartment block on the Vasilevsky Island embankment. The small but sparkling facility includes a Finnish sauna and Russian steam room, as well as a small plunge pool. It's a public banya by day, but in the evening you can book the whole place out for your private party (up to eight people). A small on-site kitchen provides catering services, so you don't have to bring your own snacks.
