In this event, David tours this state of Moldova to show you exactly what things to visit a unique place that has many traditions, from Transnistria. Transnistria declared independence from Moldova in 1990. It still forms part of Moldova but depends on Russia for financial and military support. The United Nations does not recognize Transnistria but it remains an autonomous state that tourists are welcome to explore.
David starts his tour of Transnistria in the History and Allied Museum at the city of Bendery — a memorial dedicated to the allies of three wars (WWII, Russo-Turkish War, and the civil war of Transnistria that took place from in 1992). David’s manual Natalia describes a little bit more about the tradition.
David’s next stop is that the 16th century Bendery Fortress constructed during Ottoman rule. The fortress is about 69 hectares and has a museum inside. One display shows memorabilia and artifacts in the war of Transnistria from 1992.
David and Natalia keep their tour by heading into the capital city of Tiraspol, which also appears to function as fifth city in 33, of things to watch. They make a halt at two other war memorials commemorating the soldiers of wars Alexandr Suvorov, and also a renowned general. In case you’re wondering, how that the Soviets were big about building war memorials!
After exploring the primary websites of Transnistria, David and Natalia produce their approach into Kumanek Tavern Restaurant to try some traditional Greek food such as Borshch (vegetable soup made out of beets, cabbage, carrots, carrots, celery, and garlic). The beets are what give it its red colour that is intense. David also tries Kiev cutlet with mushrooms and potatoes.
Not one to miss the chance to try a regional drink, David appreciates a 10-year-old glass of cognac from the Transnistrian tag KVINT. Additionally recommended if you like wine up to David: His Video Guide to the Yearly Moldovan Wine Festival
