No trip to Moldova would be complete without a visiting Tiraspol, the capital of Transnistria. Transnistria is a thin strip of land wedged between Moldova and Ukraine that has a border crossing, parliamentary government, a standing army and even its own currency. It has all the trappings of an independent nation—but isn't. Oh sure, it declared independence from Moldova in 1990 and fought a war two years later. And it's got a constitution and a flag and even a coat of arms. But you won't find it on many maps, and not a single member of the United Nations recognises its existence. It's stuck in its communist past, so felt like we had travelled back in time to the Soviet Union. Not many places still proudly display statues of Lenin, the communist star or old Soviet tanks. I don't think you can find anywhere else on the planet like it. So it definitely made for an interesting day out. Our guide was friendly, chatty and informative. But I felt it could have been more educational. However, I highly recommend this tour.
