Independent, brave, open and very beautiful – that is a typical woman from Krasnoyarsk. However, it turned to be uneasy to emphasize outer traits that could differ a real Krasnoyarsk woman. The reason is that there are 120 nationalities living in the region.
Krasnoyarsk region is not by chance compared to the American ‘Melting Pot’. According to the latest population census here live people of 122 nationalities. 17 of them are the most numerous and they define an economical image of the region. It has been always so here. Russians came to the territory of the modern Krasnoyarsk region at the beginning of the 17th century. For the time being here lived hundreds of native tribes – on the south and on the north, breeders, hunters and fishers. At the same time the first Siberian walled cities were founded.
There were numerous people who came to Krasnoyarsk region in the course of hundreds of years for various reasons, in search of freedom and being deprived of it. Later there were foremost Komsomol construction projects, building of industrial giants, development of new deposits. And again people came to the region from the whole country. It was the ethnic diversity which formed an image of women of Krasnoyarsk.
One should admit that Krasnoyarsk girls in general are much more orderly. They try to take much care of themselves and their appearance better than girls from western regions of the country. Probably, a high pace of life in capital cities has its impact on them, but in general women there look much simpler. Siberian brides are ready to refine themselves very seriously, though they have much less opportunities for doing it. It is not by chance that Krasnoyarsk girls are brave, sincere, and strong, no matter if it is about their work or personal life. They are decent. For them professional success is important, but they won’t go any length to make a career. Girls here are opener, kinder than those from central Russia. They are ready to sympathize. At the same time, Krasnoyarsk women know how to present themselves and look beautiful.
2 years ago there was a polling held among city dwellers ¬ ‘what kind of a woman one could consider a symbol of Krasnoyarsk’ many mentioned a two-time Olympic champion, a six-time world champion in biathlon Olga Medvetseva who is a mother of three children. To the question why is it she who has to become a symbol of the city and a personification of Krasnoyarsk women the majority of polled answered: ‘She manages to do everything. She gained success in work, brings up kids and is a beauty herself.’
