  • The legacy of the Ottoman Empire, a little preserved to our days. It is sad that the fortress took ennoble it left not spirit of the time, no feeling of the fortress with a really great history. Are neatly laid out walls and kotel'com built observation towers, prevented from fully imbued with centuries-old era. History of the fortress itself very impressed, its importance in the history of Russia, Moldavia, Turkey. The fortress was revered and great commanders and even the Russian emperors. It is important to preserve the fortress as a monument, without modern extensions.

  • 歷史感厚重的城堡。
  • Najprawdę very interesting. In przesżłości he defended Charles XII here after losing the battle of Poltava in 1709r. Today the fortress is well renovated, very contrasts with messy surroundings. Being there in April 2016 still lasting restoration. Admission as pisano 25 rubles for the citizens of the DNR, and 50 rubles for all outside the separatist Republic. The woman at the counter very polite, helpful and contact. The castle is very well described, unfortunately only in Russian. If you know Russian, you can know the whole story of Bender, the Castle and subsequent events. The walls of the Castle set a commemorative paper made of granite, referring to the social contract Pylypa Orlyka, mistakenly considered the first Constitution in Europe. From the other side of the walls is set to busts of Soviet commanders, who were in Bender. Inside the Castle you can go on the walls and towers, which have not yet all over the place are protected. It is interesting for this museum. Despite its small size, you can stay there for quite a while and admire the arrangements of Turkish and Russian camp. In addition to the entire design is a small souvenir shop, where you can also purchase any drinks or sweets. In General, the entire fortress looks better than I expected.

  • Very nicely. Upsetting paid entry. For local 25 rubles (TMR) for 50 rubles. But you can always find an alternative. If you go down to the bridge over Dniester, is behind another entrance. We climbed free. Very glad to visit there.

  • I really liked it. In Moldova only two towers, so interesting to learn about their history. Recommend!

  • Interesting object, a bit distorted quality restoration work and seemed to lack a unified reconstruction plan. Great idea-creating a viewing platform on the portal Tower from the site offers beautiful views of Bender and Tiraspol.
