The residents of the Urals can swim in warm water, enjoy the fresh air and improve their health without leaving their homeland.
One of the most famous thermal complexes, Avan resort complex, is situated a couple of hours drive from Yekaterinburg. There you can relax on weekends and after working days or celebrate the winter holidays.
The main feature of the complex is the thermal spring on the territory. Water is extracted from a depth of 1200 meters, and its temperature does not fall below 42°C. Three open-air pools fill the spring water. Hydromassage helps to reduce pain in the back and joints, lose weight and remove toxins. There is also a round bowl with a jacuzzi and waterfalls.
After water procedures in the open air, guests of Avana can go to the SPA center. Here they have a cedar barrel, Finnish and infrared saunas, a real Russian bathhouse. The highlight of the center is the hammam bath on mineral water. It flows over stones and evaporates, so time in the bath can be combined with inhalation.
There are also billiards, squash, barbecue area and much more. The complex has its own hotel; the price includes breakfast, bathing in a hot spring, access to the spa and gym.
