Transnistria, also known as Trans-Dniestr or Pridnestrovan Moldovan Republic is a breakaway territory located mostly on a strip of land between the Dniester River and the eastern Moldovan border to Ukraine. Tiraspol is the capital, with a communist-inspired parliament building proudly guarded by a large statue of V. Lenin. Large billboards with the hammer and sickle and USSR blazonry adorn the main avenue. By the Soviet Constitution Square there is a monument-tank, which is the part of the II World War & Afganistan War Memorial. Nearby in the central park, there is an imposing statue of the Russian army general, Alexander Suvorov. All these interesting things you can see in Tiraspol. You must also visit the post office for getting some nice post stamps used in this breakaway region only. Exciting, ah?
