At Regent Holidays, there’s nothing we love more than creating pioneering trips to uncover intriguing and alternative destinations – unless, of course, the destination is a breakaway state. Bonus points are awarded if that tour also coincides with a one-off event or national celebration. Our brand new Independence Day in Transdniestr tour rather ticks all of those boxes, so if you’re looking to visit somewhere really off-the-beaten-track this year, Moldova and the self-declared independent state of Transdniestr should have you fumbling for your passport.Celebrate the Independence Day of a technically non-existent country in Tiraspol, a capital city known as one of the last living relics of the Soviet Era, before spending a few days exploring northern Moldova and sampling local wine in Chisinau. During this tour, visitors have the opportunity to meet local people and learn about their religion (Russian Orthodox), understand their culture and history, and lunch with a WW2 Veteran.
