Vëska (Веска) in Belarusian language means "village". It was the original way for local people to live in small communities where they were free, owned the land they lived on and cared for it. Since the introduction of nations and governments, this lifestyle have almost been lost and only small remnants of this still exist in Belarus (and other countries across the world).

One of the many essential elements of village lifestyle in Belarus is wood-fired sauna, called "Banya". Its essential healing properties were well understood and used to reinvigorate human body and mind on a regular basis.

Vëska By The Lake brings traditional ancestral Belarusian village style cuisine and Eastern European sauna therapies "Banya" to Australia.

We offer:

  • Cafe with ancestral Belarusian village style cuisine

  • Personal and group sauna therapies (by appointment only)
