Being the first to get under the skin of an alternative destination is what we at Regent Holidays love to do most (and we think we do it very well). That’s why we’re excited about Transdniestr—not only have very few western tourists heard about it, even fewer have ever visited. A self-declared independent republic, this breakaway state is not internationally recognized as a country but governs itself, controls its own borders, maintains its own currency and even celebrates its own national events.
On this group tour, join a Soviet country that technically doesn’t exist in their celebrations of Victory Day, when the streets are lined with large military parades to remember those who lost their lives in WW2—known locally as the Great Patriotic War. The parades take place in Tiraspol, the capital city of this fascinating breakaway state in which the USSR lives on. In addition to exploring After exploring Transdniestr, spend a few days discovering northern Moldova and sampling local wine in Chisinau.
