Ice Bath House in Baikalsk

While this may look like something out of an icy fairy tail, it is a ice bath house in Baikalsk, which is  is a small town in the south of Lake Baikal in Russia.

It has been built by Andrew Pylyuh and Vladimir Zolotchenko.  The bath house hold up to 15 people and cost 5,000 rubles (approx $167 USD) for 2 hours.  Unfortunately, it is not breaking even as there are few visitors, which is sad because it is very unique.

Only thing I would be hesitate to visit if I ever went there...the ice commode.
