Transnistria, Tiraspol
(4.5/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
A self-declared autonomous region between Moldova and the Ukraine, Transnistria celebrates its Soviet past and treasures the colorful monuments and statues that line the streets, declaring the region's loyalty to Russia. Enter the main city, Tiraspol, from Chisinau. The city boasts many monuments and statues dedicated to Lenin, and it is a friendly place with inexpensive and cheerful food and drink. Particularly good wine and cognac are produced in the country, and you can visit Kvint, a distillery in Tiraspol that offers tours and tastings. Outside of Tiraspol you can visit Noul Neamț Monastery, military cemeteries, and vast abandoned complexes in a fascinating state of decay. You will need to show your passport to enter; if you wish to stay more than ten hours, you will need to register and provide proof of where you will stay during your visit. Be aware that the border and road guards can be challenging; keep a firm and pleasant attitude for a trouble-free access.

  • We were expecting a museum-like Restanz with the typical grey stuffy Sovjetcharme in Tiraspol. We have taken on an interesting city. Nicely cleaned out buildings from the beginning of the 20.Jhdts, a pompous Palace in Stalin Baroque, a government building in an interesting Board construction technology and many Nigel brand new buildings, urban development well suited to the old stock. Impressively the variety and quantity of fruits, vegetables, fish and meat in the covered market - nothing because of poorer sovjetischer scarcity. There were best Italian-style cappuccino in the coffee bar. The hotel was modern Western standard of a business hotel. It stands in a suspenseful contrast to the institutions that still carry the Soviet designation and probably also still work. Of them we could win an impression at a concert at the Club of veterans. People, whom we begneten were friendly and interested in spite of linguistic Kommunikatiosproblemen. Who does not read the Cyrillic alphabet and speaks some Russian, has more of a visit with a local guide who can explain and translate... The entry and exit formalities were less bureaucratic and officials at least as friendly as those of U.S. immigration. We felt unsafe or threatened in any situation, there was no unusual presence of police and military forces on the streets.
