The Rusalki were water nymphs and can be found in both Slavonic and Russian
mythology. They were thought to be the spirits of drowned girls. In south-eastern
Europe, they were commonly pictured as beautiful, siren-like creatures
who would attempt to lure unsuspecting passers-by into the water with
their magical song. In the northern Europe, they were considered to be
malevolent, unkempt and unattractive creatures, who would grab travellers
from the river banks and drag them down into the river and drown them.
