Hi Comrades!
Maybe some of you have heard about this place already but for those that don’t know il tell you a bit about it. As the Soviet Union was collapsing many localised civil wars began against nationalism. One of them the Moldovan civil war of 1993. The mainly Russian population who live on the left bank of the Dniester river broke away in trying to keep this part of Moldova for the USSR. The Moldovan SSR proclaimed its independence but those in Prinestrovia didn’t like this at all. The Romanian fascists who then and now rule Moldova wanted Pridnestrovia back as there they are more industrialised. So a war broke out which never officially finished.
When all of the Soviet Union finally collapsed Prinedstrovia didnt. Everything is like it was in the Soviet times, street names, statues and so on. But living standards fell because the system she was joined to collapsed. So the unrecognized government of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic began to sell left over Soviet Arms and drugs and so on. They’ve got a pretty bad reputation because of this. But ive been there and I can say that its much cleaner than Moldova and I quite like it. Everything is run by a "company" called Sheriff. The presidents son owns it. The border guards still wear the Soviet emblems and uniforms. The national flag is that of the old MSSR hammer and sickle and all. Its not hard getting there you don’t need a Visa because they are not recognised by any one. I advise a trip for those with nostalgic hankerings for the USSR and for those who just want to go to an unrecognised state because its a bit weird and you can tell every one you’ve been to this strange place that’s not on any maps.

Someone here has been to the PMR too and has taken quite a few photographs there. You can check out his pictures through a link to his site in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=122&t=48328

I've read that Pridnestrovia has actually also taken the road to market economy and privatization.
How far has capitalism and the market economy spread in Pridnestrovia, I wonder. Is it still effectively kind of Socialist, like for example Belarus?

http://dprk.youngpioneertours.com/eurasian-adventure-tour/ This group offers tours, and they also have a picture gallery. For what its worth, they are highly rated for their North Korean tours as well.

I actually went there with Young Pioneer Tours last year. Place is really very very cool, but it is not socialist like DPRK, or Belarus, more like Chinese socialism, which is wild west capitalism. Lots and lots of Soviet icons and nostalgia though. In some respects it may be like what would have happened if glasnost and perestroika had worked. Very interesting though. I have seen that Young Pioneers have a new website for the place, and are running more tours there this year http://www.yptransnsitria.com
