In Slavic mythology Rusalka were demonic creatures inhabiting forests, fields and bodies of water. They were imagined as beautiful, naked girls with long, loose hair. They laughed loudly and sang. They appeared during the new moon and attracted young men to them. If anyone approached them, the hair of the mermaids turned green and their faces twisted. The Rusalka would kill lured people who touched them. It was believed that maidens who died before they could get married became Rusalka.
