Tiraspol is internationally recognised as the second largest city in Moldova, but is effectively the capital and administrative centre of the unrecognised Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). Kick off your visit on the 17th (Tue): appreciate the history behind The Memorial of Military Glory, then steep yourself in history at Bendery Fortress, and then ponder the world of politics at Supreme Soviet. On your second day here, make a trip to The Tank Monument, then pause for some photo ops at The Suvorov Monument, and then get a sense of history and politics at House of Soviets.

Known to some as Moldova's "breakaway state," Transnistria can feel like a completely separate country. While the UN does not recognize its independence, Transnistria maintains its own government, police, parliament, and currency. Most of the region's half-million residents are not Moldovan--they are fairly evenly split between Moldovans, Russians, and Ukrainians. Tourism here revolves around the 1990 Transnistria War, in which this region attempted to gain sovereignty. While there is no current conflict here, residents are still separatists. Don't leave without trying the locally crafted wine and cognac, which are good quality and quite inexpensive.
