Mariupol travel guide
Mariupol is a very beautiful, cozy and green city. The central avenues are full of many cultural institutions, cafes and restaurants. Nowadays the ecology in Mariupol is significantly improved, due to the closure of the coke plant, located in the city center. After the installation of new cleaning facilities at metallurgical plants, Mariupol will pretend to be the clearest city in the country. And tourist all over the world will be recommended to have a rest there.
Mariupol is located in the steppe latitudes at the confluence of the two rivers Kalmius and Kalchik. It occupies the strategically important territory of the south Donbass on the shore of the Azov Sea. The year of the city foundation is 1778, when the decree of Empress Catherine II determined the settlement of Pavlovsk. Already during the first year a huge number of Crimean residents came to Pavlovsk: Greeks, seafarers and skillful traders. These settlers, mostly Greeks, in 1779 renamed the city to Mariupol (in their language - Marianopol).
Mariupol is known since the beginning of the XVI century as a Cossack fortress, but the real city was only after the resettlement in the Azov Sea of the Crimean Greeks in 1778-1780. At the end of the XIX century, the city had a railway, a new large port and metallurgical plants. In the years of industrialization, the giant plant Azovstal and many other enterprises were built here. The city survived the fascist occupation (1941-1943) and the economic recession (the end of the 20th century). The 40s of the 19th century attracted a lot of Ukrainians and Russians who liked the convenient geographical location of Mariupol, sea wealth, abundant fertility of the Azov Sea, mineral deposits, large commercial and industrial centers.
Motorways, railway, sea and air lines connect Mariupol with many small and large regions of Ukraine and abroad. This fact has a beneficial effect on the growth and prosperity of the city. Mariupol boasts its own sea trading port, airport, railway station and two bus stations.

Men like women who are very careful. A woman with greasy, dirty hair, stale underwear, with a shabby varnish on her nails and smelling sweat, even if she is looks like Barbie, are not interesting for men. That’s why Mariupol women know how to take care of themselves. They have beautiful make-up and take a shower at least twice a day.
Moreover these girls know what is self-respect and self-love. The law of psychology says: only those who love and respect themselves are respected and loved by other. To love and respect yourself is not at all to be a selfish person. Mariupol woman who loves and respects herself, knows her own worth, never compares herself to other women, does not envy, and accepts herself as she is, including both merits and demerits. Such a woman does not humiliate others, but she will never allow anyone to offend her.
One more feature of Mariupol women is flirtatiousness. The ability to flirt imitate men in women on a subconscious level, because it gives the woman that elusive charm, which is called "a highlight".
