If you ever happen to go to Transnistria, you are already full of cliches. And you know, some of what you’ve heard is true. The truth is, you are in a country that doesn’t exist, but it does. It has three national languages. It has marshrutkas and trolleybuses. Good wine and cognac. Soviet legacy within monuments and architecture. River Dniester between green hills and valleys. Old Turkish fortress in Bendery where Carl XXII was hiding from Peter the Great. And the folk. Hey, I just don’t want to give it all out, but tell you one more thing. The real name of the country is Pridnestrovie. Remember the word. And Pridnestrovie is unrecognized country. Just come and see.
And decide for yourself if it deserves recognition.
