Transnistria is officialy unrecognized republic which occupies 10% of Moldova’s territory to the east of River Dniester. Its citizes are in almost even parts Russians, Moldovans and Ukrainians, who all together opt for Transnistria independence. Although the country officialy does not exists, it established border controls, has its own government, president and even their own currency. The capital of Transnistria is Tiraspol – a small city located in southern part of this narrow stripe of land occuppied by Transnistria

  • Loved to be there!

Because the republic remains in Rusian influence area, everyone and especially people with western point of view, see this place as nothing more than one big relict of communism. As a country that in fact does not have any relationships with others besides Russia, Transnistria indeed is in a kind of isolation form the rest of the world. But we have to admitt that the level of socio – economic development is not lower than neighbouring Moldova’s. We would even dare say that it is better.

on the streets of the city there are many booths selling kvas – refreshing, cool beverage sold from draught. Having a glass of it is a perfect way to cool yourself. Although its prices are rather advantageous it is not that easy to get it. You will not receive it for your euro or dollars, nor for Russian rubels or Moldovan leis. Every very welcomed tourist has to present local currency – Transnistria rubels and use them to do any transaction in the country. There are money exchange on every corner so after a while we could enjoy a glass of cool kvas. Even Ola, encouraged by the seller, has tried it and at our suprise liked it a lot.

The most popular restaurant seems to be Moldovan Andy’s Pizza offering mainly western cuisine, maybe with few local positions on the menu. American way styled place offers kids corner, menu for the little ones and maybe even high chairs. Prices are preferential but remember about having cash.

Ola couldn’t wait until we sit down in a restaurant and had hear dinner from the jar in located accross the street park by the cinema building. Behind the cinema there is a beautiful view over The Cathedral of Nativity. Snow-white walls carry green roofs and gold domes above the tree line. Central point of the park is the monument of Alexander Suvorov on his horse.

Tiraspol is a very calm city, life goes here a little slower than in other capitals in Europe or Asia but you can tell that the city develops, new buildings are being built. For example in the very center of the city huge apartment building is growing. Traffic is much slower than for example in Chisinau but besides standard in this area marshrutkas, passengers enjoy new trolleybuses. Streets are clean, wide, city architecture spacious; the city looks like a pleasant place to live.

memorial complex for soldiers killed in 1990-1992 war, World War II and the war in Afghanistan. An eternal flame burns in honor of those who sacrificed their lives defending and liberating the city.

モルドバ系はこの地を去り、ロシア系はモルドバからこの地へ来た。ユダヤ人は未だ迫害を受ける。 モルドバの首都キシナウから同じバスで来た若い女性は、この地に移住した母に会いに来た。 「なぜこの地が、国家承認されず、生活に困窮しなければいけないの?」 と訴えられ、言葉にならなかった。 ソ連崩壊時に各共和国が次々に独立する中、モルドバ内の沿ドニエストル地方が独立を宣言。 モルドバ政府と内戦になりロシアが介入、現在は停戦中のままであります。 もともとこの地はベッサラビア(モルドバ地域)ではなく、ソビエト時代にモルドバと一緒の自治体にさせられてしまいました。 クリミア半島と似た経緯です。この国(為政者?)もロシアへの編入を求めています。 ロシアのみがこの国を承認、あとはグルジア内の独立宣言地域アブアジア共和国、南オセチア共和国と双方で承認し合っているのみであります。 沿ドニエストル政府は実効支配をし、自国の政府、軍隊、なんと通貨まで存在すると言う点において、立場は台湾と同じと言えるでしょう。 モルドバからミニバスに乗り首都ティラスポリへ向かいました。 途中国境の検問にて、当日中に領内から出て行くことを条件に入国が許されました。 写真 http://www.flickr.com/photos/marcy210/sets/72157624806897597/
