Transnistria

Transnistria is a region that is “officially” part of the Republic of Moldova, but has unilaterally declared itself an independent state with the city of Tiraspol as its capital.

Visitors who remember the USSR often talk about a certain feeling of return. Indeed, Tiraspol in particular, with its statues of Lenin, memorials and socialist murals, offers the visitor that strange experience of “returning to the USSR”.

An important objective in Tiraspol is the House of Soviets (town hall), not only because of the Lenin monument in front of it, but more because of the line of huge photographic portraits on both sides of the square around Lenin.

Another special place is the Tiraspol memorial. Its centerpiece is an old Soviet tank as a symbol of victory in the “Great Patriotic War”. From the memorial square, the panorama of the parliament building, in front of which is the statue of Lenin in red marble, also opens.

To the south is the Tighina Fortress - one of the medieval border fortresses of Moldova, part of the defensive system strengthened by the great voivode Stephen the Great. Inside the fortress there is a museum, where artifacts discovered by archaeologists are preserved, but also butaphoric elements that represent various fragments of the history of the fortress.

The Tighina fortress was renamed by the Turks in Bender, a Turkish term taken over by the present administration too.
