Transnistria (official name Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic; in Russian Pridnestrovskaia Moldavskaia Respublika, PMR) declared its independence in 1990, entailing a civil war with the much larger successor state of the Republic of Moldova that lasted until 1992.
Transnistria is a product of the messy breakup of the Soviet Union, when a part of the newly formed Republic of Moldova that wanted to stay in the Russian family, rebelled against Romanian language domination from Kishinev and decided to go its own way.
We are glad to see you at the hotel "Sofia", located in Tiraspol downtown, near the city park on the 395A Karl Liebknecht str.
Transdniestria is not a classic tourist destination, but it offers some kind of Soviet charm and is one of the few "countries that do not exist" (at least according to the UN) that are not in close proximity to the active combat zone. Thus, you can brag about the presence in your passport of a note on entry into a country that "does not exist" and bills in your wallet that are invalid outside Transnistria. And besides bills and coins in Transnistria, there are other sights.
