Almost all guests of Samara when recollecting a city note two facts. Samara is a city of awful roads and beautiful women. Even citizens of the two capitals have to admit that a female population of the Povolzhye city is different with its beauty and attractiveness. One can definitely say that a Slavic type of appearance dominates in Samara. It means bright eyes of a grey and blue color, a bright skin, bright fair hair and dark fair hair.
A phrase ‘The most beautiful girls in Russia live in Samara’ belongs to a famous Russian film director Nikita Mikhalkov. He said it in an advert where he played a role of a cosmonaut. However, there is no smoke without fire. If a word has been said, there should be a reason why it was said. Guests of the city have not once confirmed that there is a big number of beautiful women in Samara.
Not only specialists in appearance, but historians as well tries to puzzle out the enigma of Samara women beauty. The historians in the course of studying of archives found out a quite interesting fact.
There was a quite strange tradition in tsarist Russia. Women of pleasure were exiled to Samara from Moscow and St. Petersburg. To attract men and be able to afford herself to be immoral a woman should possess beauty. Both capitals regularly sent to Samara beautiful women of pleasure. It’s one of versions which historians offer. Geneticists consider that the reason why Samara women are considered to be one of the most beautiful is different.
A woman’s beauty is a subjective notion. Every ethnos and folk has its own model conditioned not only by social factors but genetics as well. Samara was located in the center of trade routs during many centuries. Here many folks lived side by side and they mixed in the course of years. The result was that in the appearance of many Samara women there are traits of many nations ¬– Slavs, Asian people, Nordic folks, Turks etc. The result is that every man looking at a citizen of Samara sees in her something relative to his genetic memory. This fact lead to an opinion that in Samara live the most beautiful women. The thing is not in definite facial features peculiar to Samara women only, but in a diversity of many traits, in a successful combination of many phenotypes.
