    by Suuz Updated Jan 2, 2005

    There's a very nice but expensive (for Russian standards) in the SUPER-complex. It costs 40 euro's a month, but i think the facilities are worth it. There are aerobics classes and a gym. There's a sauna and it is very clean and that's worth the money.

    Equipment: err shoes and sport clothes. And a big bag of money!
