The STORY of a NON-EXISTING country

How about celebrating the Independence Day of a non-existing country? Strange, isn’t it? Strange but possibile… Transnistria is a breakaway part of Republic Of Moldova, who has all the necessary things to be a country (government, local currency, National Bank, local car license plates for the cars, flag, police, army, etc.) but except one thing….it is not recognized by nobody except... South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Nagorno Karabah, all sister “countries” being in the same situation. And like any normal country they have a National Day, and they celebrate it! So let’s go and see how they celebrate, meet locals and talk to them, visit their capital Tiraspol, understand their religion - Russian orthodox, see their country, history and see for yourself how they live and what they have to offer.

An unrecognized country celebrates its independence - Transnistria!

Transnistria - is a breakaway territory within the internationally recognized borders of Moldova. Although not recognized by any state or international organization, it is de facto an independent state named the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. The country’s national coat of arms still includes the traditional hammer and sickle and the Lenin statue hasn’t yet been pulled down. The Pridnestrovie today may still retain the look of a Communist state and it’s called “the last remaining Stalinist dictatorship in Europe”.dsddd

Спасибо за прекрасный отпуск. Твоё знание своей страны и языков невероятно. Я наслаждался каждой минутой! Наилучшие пожелания тебе и твоей семье, Боб.

Наталья, очень знающий гид, далеко превзошла мои ожидания !!! Я частый путешественник, всегда пытаюсь найти хороших гидов. Но до сих пор Наталья - мой самый любимый. Информация, которую она дала нам, вы никогда не сможете ожидать от обычного гида. Все было хорошо организовано. Чувствуется, что она любит свою работу. У нее широкие навыки. Спасибо!

Наталья - это не просто лучший гид, но и надежный человек, с которым вы никогда не беспокоитесь о туре. Когда нам нужен англоговорящий гид по программе, мы никогда не думаем, кому позвонить. Для нас самое главное знать, есть ли у Натальи возможность на этот период.

Только работая с ней, мы уверены, что работа будет выполнена отлично. Она много знает, туристы всегда довольны.
