Vladivostok: The Bryners Mansion
November 8, 2017 01:31


The Bryner’s mansion was built in 1910 under the design of the architect, Hugo Georg Junghändel. This one of the most beautiful mansions in the city belonged to the rich merchant Julius Joseph Bryner and his family.

Bryner, a native of Switzerland, at the age of 16 left his home searching for adventures. First he settled in Yokohama (Japan), he married, but then abandoned his family and in the eighties of the XIX century moved to Vladivostok. The owner of a large shipping company received Russian citizenship and quickly became one of the most famous industrialists in the Far East.

Under the influence of Julius Bryner, the historical center of the Primorye capital was formed. In Vladivostok, Julius Bryner married again. His wife was Natalia Iosifovna Kurkutova. The family had six children: three boys and three girls. One of the sons, Boris, after graduating from the gymnasium entered the University of St. Petersburg, where he studied mineralogy. In St-Petersburg, he met with the daughter of Vladivostok doctor Marousa Blagovidova, who studied at the conservatory. In 1914 they were married, and on July 11, 1920 they had a son, whom they called Julius in honor of his grandfather. He was destined to become a very popular actor Yul Brynner. After the revolution, his family left Russia, and as a result of long wanderings, Yul settled in America, added a second "n" to his family name and began to try his hand at the movies. Yul Brynner received an Oscar for his role in the film "The King and Me" (1956).
