Tiraspol — 6 nights

Tiraspol is internationally recognised as the second largest city in Moldova, but is effectively the capital and administrative centre of the unrecognised Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). Tiraspol is known for sightseeing, historic sites, and wineries. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the long history of Bendery Fortress, get a sense of history and politics at House of Soviets, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chitcani Monastery (Noul Neamt), and take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Christmas Cathedral.

Known to some as Moldova's "breakaway state," Transnistria can feel like a completely separate country. While the UN does not recognize its independence, Transnistria maintains its own government, police, parliament, and currency. Most of the region's half-million residents are not Moldovan--they are fairly evenly split between Moldovans, Russians, and Ukrainians. Tourism here revolves around the 1990 Transnistria War, in which this region attempted to gain sovereignty. While there is no current conflict here, residents are still separatists. Don't leave without trying the locally crafted wine and cognac, which are good quality and quite inexpensive.
