Long ago and quite successfully, there exists a stable idea about female citizens of Vladivostok being different from women of other cities of Russia. Having once been to the seaside capital men (especially foreigners from Japan, China, Canada, and the USA) dream of coming here back to feel again a mysterious and magnetic strength of the female principle of Vladivostok.
Is there really something in girls that charms many men?
Psychologists assert that girls who grew up of a huge ocean absorb the whole depth of sky blue and merge with a sense of endlessness of space and integrity with the whole world. Pacification is habitual for a future woman from her early childhood. A closeness not just to the sea, but to the ocean is a basis on which a character of a future woman from Vladivostok is formed. Ocean and Earth – these components make a marvelous combination giving birth to a phenomenon that in the world culture got a name of ‘a woman on a bank’ and is visible in Vladivostok.
Mothers, wives, daughters, brides whos husbands and fathers spend the most of their lives in the sea know how to wait. To wait for their man, their hero is a real art. To possess it one has to be in two states simultaneously – in a state of discomfort and waiting for those who are in the sea, and in a state of love. No matter if she takes care of children, rebuilds a house, is happy for small gifts of life. A woman is waiting all this time. It is extremely hard to endure an underlying worry for their beloved husbands and sons. However, seaside woman manage to do this.
It is not a mentality of brides from Vladivostok that makes them different from other ladies from big Russian cities. Here there is a peculiar style of clothing: a bright sensationism, expression, and sexuality. Sometimes it goes beyond what we call a ‘European style.’ Girls in Vladivostok are used to presenting themselves. It means that they look billion dollars every day and in any situation. It is the reason of their love to high heels, bright make-up, a big number of golden jewelry, and sexy style. It is what women from Vladivostok like. They are beautiful and attractive, complicated and controversial, provincial and urbane, strong-willed and ambitious.
