Landmarks of Transnistria


This tour will take you to a strange, unrecognised region of Transnistria that broke away from Moldova under tense circumstances in 1990. Despite their attempts to become a recognized country, the region has not been granted that status either by the international community or Russia in spite of the fact that 65% of the population are Russian speakers.
Since the short, but bloody military conflict between Transnistria and Moldova in 1992 things have been rather quiet which allows to call it "a frozen conflict". De-Jure this country doesn't exist, but de-Facto it does as it has its own institutions of governance, such as: President, Parliament, Ministries, Security Service, Tax Office, money (Transnistrian ruble).

There is a checkpoint between Moldova and Transnistria. Please, bear in mind: your passport WILL NOT get stamped. We will also visit Bender fortfess (where The Swedish King Carl XII lived for 4 years) and splendid Neamt monastery to see the tallest bell tower in Eastern Europe (70 meters tall).
