While at Gudauri, we stayed at the Marco Polo hotel. The hotel has a spa, with a small sauna, pool, and a jacuzzi. The sauna is small but fiery. It was also fun to meet Russians who wanted to talk about the infamous (and sadly, deadly) Finnish-Russian sauna world championships...
It was also interesting to see so many guests out in the snow, laying around and rubbing snow on themselves. I guess the Georgian & Russian cultures have very similar approach to sauna as we do in Finland :-)
