Yul Brynner Monument, Vladivostok, Russia.
sie 2019
Yul Brynner was one of my favorite actors. As a result, I had to visit this monument to pay my respects to him. I was with friends who live here in Vladivostok and they drove me to the monument and waited as I visited. As monuments go, it is average. But I'm very happy that I visited with Yul in spirit.

Worth a visit
sie 2019
Yul Brynner (Yuliy Borisovich Briner) who played King Mongkut of Siam in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I, has a monument in front of the house where he was raised. He was of Swiss-German-Russian-Mongol descent which gave him a distinguised and exotic look and in the statue he is striking his famous King and I pose. Well worth a visit as he is arguably the most famous son of the city and most people never would have guessed where he was from.

Who knew ?
sie 2019
Just by chance, we came upon the fact that Yul Brynner, or Yuliy Borisovich Bryner, as his real name was, came from Vladivostok, and that there is a statue of him at the house where he legibly grew up ............
- Our Hotel was close by, so we visited and took some pictures.......!

You Gotta See it

Vladivostok, Russia, is full of military monuments, even a full submarine that’s been converted into a museum which is OK, but expect a long line if that’s your thing

There’s never a line for the wonderful Yul Brynner monument which strikes a ‘King & I’ pose in front of the house in which he was born. Yes, Yul Brynner was somehow born in Vladivostok, Russia (!)

Anyway, seeing it was the highlight of my time in Western Russia

Only one place I could not find
maj 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I was staying nearby so I wanted to see the statue and tired 3 times but could not find them. Even in Japan I had difficulty in finding the place where American soldiers kept as POW died by the atomic bomb and was succesfull after 4th trial guided by a kind girl working at the stationery house nearby in Hiroshima. This time I did not have courage to ask busy pedestrians around.

Statue

Yul Brynner was born in the house just behind the statue, but the house isn't open to the public. This was obviously a well off part of the city.

The story to tell

I was advised by a friend to visit the monument after few days spent in town. It is interesting how such places of interest are spread around the globe and you find them by chance.

Yul Brynner - The Hero of Vladivostok
sie 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
It seems that to the tour guides of Vladivostok there is nothing more interesting for foreign visitors to see in their city than anything to do with Yul Brynner. Our walking tour even bypassed the world famous railway station at the end of the 9,000 km trans-Siberian railway line from Moscow because the tour guide was concerned that we might miss the house where Brynner was born, the street he lived in, the theatre he acted in or the monument erected in his honour. Disappointment abounded.

The Yul Brynner Monument stands close to the house of his birth and has him standing in the classic pose of King Mongkut of Siam whom Brynner played in the famous film, The King and I.

Difficult to locate statue, but worth the effort
lip 2017 • Dla rodziny
I had fond memories of Yul's movies when I was a child. All of his hit movies were between 1951-1960, so the younger folk will not remember him. He was born in Vladivostok at 15 Aleutskaya Street. His family ran a successful trading company which was located near to the house he grew up in.The family separated after the Russian Civil War in 1923, when the concept of "wealth" distribution was practiced by the Bolshoviks, and many successful business were taken over by the state. Yul traveled to Harbin, China with his mother and sister. At the time, you could have mistaken Harbin for Russia, as many of the buildings were constructed in Russian architectural style.

Political instability again forced the family to move, due to the 1931 Mukden Incident in Shenyang, which formed the basis of the Japan invasion of China. The family feared the outbreak of war in China, and moved to Paris, France in 1932. Yul's sister moved from here to the USA. In 1938, Yul's mother became ill, and after a brief return to Harbin in 1938, they moved to the USA to stay with his sister in 1940. He took acting lessons, and eventually landed his signature role of the King of Siam in the 1951 hit musical, The King and I. Yul played this role over 4,000 times during his career. His other major hits were as Ramesses II in the hit 10 Commandments in 1956, and a western, The Magnificent 7 in 1960.

He is without doubt, the most famous Russian born actor. He is remembered annually by a film festival in Vladivostok, which is visited regularly by his son.He died in 1985, from lung cancer, caused by excessive smoking, although he had stopped smoking many years earlier. The statue in Vladivostok, was erected in 2012.

It is actually quite difficult to see the statue from street level, and we passed the location twice before seeing the statue.It is a 10 minute walk from Central Square, heading in a southerly direction (towards the train station) on Aleutskaya Street.Walk on the right hand side of the street, past the bus stop. On reaching the section of the sidewalk where there are black painted bollards attached by chains,.you are very close. On the right hand side, there are two flights of steps, that lead up to a parking area. Take the steps on the left, and continue straight ahead to a small park area, a short walk up a slope. Once you have entered the park, the statue of Yul,with his piercing stare, that was a feature of his King and I role will be seen. He is dressed, in the costume of the role for which he is most famous. I thought that his bare feet was the most appealing element of the statue, and could not resist taking a photo. My son had never seen the movie before, and we spent the afternoon watching the King and I, which brought back great memories. We missed visiting the nearby house museum, as our visit was early in the morning. The main city museum at the junction of Aleutskaya and Svetlansjaya Street (a 10 minute walk away), had original posters of Yul's famous movies on display. Look out for them when you are climbing the stairs to the upstairs exhibits.

Located in between the train station and the shopping malls / The signature museum. Why don't go there to take a photo.
