The STORY of a NON-EXISTING country

About Tour

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!

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”.

Querida Victoria

Acepte el endosado como muestra de mi agradecimiento y aprecio. He tenido la suerte, a lo largo de los años, de haber viajado a muchos destinos y de haber experimentado todo tipo de guía. En mi opinión, está en lo más alto, uno de los pocos elegidos que logran "hacerlo bien".

Como cualquier trabajo calificado, guiar es algo que, cuando se hace bien, ¡parece fácil! Tú y yo sabemos que ese no es el caso; Es una profesión dura y exigente que pocas personas hacen adecuadamente, y aún menos, bien. Casi nadie hace un trabajo tan bueno que sus clientes se sientan cuidados, seguros, valorados y especiales. Usted, en mi opinión, es uno de esos raros líderes de gira.

Por favor, acepte mi pequeña muestra de gratitud. Has sido amable, ligero, conocedor (extremadamente), considerado, tolerante, eficiente, confiable ... Podría continuar, pero para evitar tus sonrojos terminaré diciendo que no puedo encontrar una sola crítica (esto es algo raro para mí ... ¡Tengo estándares muy altos!).

Su empresa depende de su éxito para que usted cumpla lo que prometió. Lo has hecho profesionalmente con una sonrisa, sentido del humor y dignidad de agradecimiento.

Le deseo toda la suerte del mundo para el futuro y gracias por dejarme no solo recuerdos felices sino también una impresión positiva de Moldavia.

Con mis mejores deseos, Veronica.
