The City of Brides


I’m telling about love again
When it will bother to repeat
Know that I’m going to Ivanovo
Because the City of Brides it is.

the song from the film «Honest, intelligent, unmarried», 1981

From the tsar’s time Ivanovo was the center of textile industry in Russia and a lot of young girls came there in pursuit of employment. The romantic time of factories came to the end, but the native land of Tarkovsky preserves its feminine alias till now.
