It is a very special post today, a digital interview with Anton Dendemarchenko, artist and tour guide from Transnistria, the country that doesn’t exist. I can tell that it does exist and I traveled there in 2017. It looks like the last standing Soviet republic where time stopped in 1990, I saw capital city Tiraspol and old fortress in Bendery. I added some photos from this unique journey so you see that it is not a joke – Transnistria is a real country and it does exist! (more…)
The skirmish at Bender is a famous battle, where the Swedish King Charles XII and 40 of his men came into a conflict with the 600 Turkish soldiers in current Moldova (Transnistria). The year was 1713. Here is what the place and the stronghold look like today. (more…)
There is a country that hardly anyone knows about. This land is the last remaining Soviet Republic. Here, time stopped in 1990. In this country, it’s an official state of war and we have been there. Read the travelogue from Transnistria, a unique place in Europe.
Tiraspol is one of the world’s least-known capital cities. What makes the city unique, however, is that the time has ceased in 1990. In Tiraspol, the Soviet Union still lives and the whole place is like an open-air museum. This is what the capital of Transnistria looks like – 2015.
