Lietuviškos pirties bičiulių draugija (Lithuanian pirtis friends society) on the basis of the project “Gera pirtis” (good sauna) visited Raudonkalnis and gave “a very good pirtis” rating.
At the “Raudonkalnis” farm you can try the traditional Lithuanian sauna, which has been called “white pirtis” from time immemorial. In the sauna, the temperature is always enjoyable, the incoming steam makes you feel a pleasant pleasure. And if you lack the steam, you can try the Turkish steam bath, where four or five people in a room can enjoy the pleasant warmth together. You can also try the ancient sitting sauna. Women prefer this bath, but it’s also great for men. The homestead also has a tub offering spa treatments with herbs, salt, soda or hydrosol. This is not ordinary sitting in a hot tub but a great way to breathe in natural herbal aromas while improving your wellbeing.
The owners of Raudonkalnis, professional sauna masters Daiva and Aurimas Veseckai, offer, among other treatments, body scrub, sauna birching (vanojimas) using bath brooms (vantos), which heats the body so that you have a great desire to refresh under the cold shower or dive into the pond. You will also be able to enjoy the natural flavors of various plants and relax with the sounds of the Tibetan bowl and the rain stick. Here you will always be treated hospitably with herbal tea made from plants grown on the farm. In the “Raudonkalnis” sauna you can try educational bath programs and individual treatments.
Film crew of the program “Vantos lapas”(bath broom) visited our sauna. We received great reviews and nice comments. The program moderator Saulius decorated the steam room door with a symbolic bath broom. During the filming, we shared our knowledge with the viewers of the program. We also invite you to watch the programs.
