Getting to Transnistria

by JoeReaney

Hi,

Can anybody tell me if trains and buses to Transnistria are currently running? If so, what is the best way to get from Chisinau to Tiraspol and then on to Odesa? Also should I expect to pay any 'extras' for entering and exiting the region?

Many thanks,
Joe

Buses run frequently from the central bus station. The bus to Odesa takes about 5 hours and actually goes through Tiraspol. Of course, there are also lots of buses to Tiraspol only. Also, there are private drivers there who pack a car with 3-4 people and go. Will be more expensive than the bus, but faster, because the cars cross borders much faster than buses.

No need to pay extra if your docs are ok. You will get a paper while entering Transnistria which you'll need to give in upon leaving. Official transfer fees are something like a couple of bucks.

The busses direct to Odessa run from the north bus station (gara de nord) You will have no problems travelling through the transnistra on one of these busses.

From the central bus station you can get a bus every 20 mins or so to Tiraspol, the price is a couple of bucks then another couple at the border to enter. They have just withdrawn the invitation letter so it is much easier to enter these days for a longer period.

Come on, it's a few bucks in each case. It's not like $100 or $200. Maybe $10-20 overall.

Travel Tips for Chisinau

Bernardazzi

by josephescu

Outstanding Italian architect who had designed and built the most significant edifices that form the Chisinau unique look of the 19th century. Benardazzi appreciated the decorative characteristics of the natural white coquina quarried in the Chisinau outskirts. Before that all the constructions were plastered, and only in the end of the 19th century came into use the neat stone-work with the redbrick insertions. This kind of fronts design became the local peculiarity.

Congradulate the Birthday Person in a big way!

by PashenkaMD

Hey! If someone invites you to partake in a birthday celebration... TAKE THE CHANCE! It is really cool how the culture of Moldova celebrates birthdays. It usually involves drinking, a cake (fruit, cake and icing), and some dancing. You should bring a gift that represents your relationship to the person... or a drink if they are drinkers... Be alert to WHO THEY ARE and not what you think would be nice. You ARE the foreigner.

Jews in Chisinau

by ZiOOlek

In the late 19th century, especially due to growing anti-semitic sentiment in Russia and Poland and better economic conditions, many Jews chose to settle in Chiºinãu, so in the year 1900 43% of the population of Chiºinãu was Jewish. Today, about 20,000 Jews live in Chisinau (Kishinev), 2,500-3,000 in and around the city of Beltsy, and more than 2,000 in Tiraspol (the capital of Transnistria). Substantial communities also exist in Bender, Soroky, Rybnitsa and Orgei, with smaller communities in at least 45 villages across Moldova. About 1,5% of the Moldova's populations are Jews.

Interesting history of Jews in Moldova below. The Monument commemorates people from the Chisinau's Ghetto.

Be sure you don't miss it

by josephescu about La Taifas

Crème de la crème of restaurants in Chisinau located just opposite the Romanian embassy. Wide variety of Moldavian cuisine, expect to pay around 10 EUR for a full meal including desert. And is so delicious that you can be sorry for you have only one stomach.

If you have the budget, opt for a bottled wine instead of the house one. Don’t miss the home made noodles and the roasted duck filled with plums. In fact, don’t miss anything, try as much as you can.

traditional food in a traditional atmosphere

by S.Cunis about La Taifas - Casa Mare

The restaurant is in a very traditional style and is a fine place to enjoy traditional food.
In the evening they sometimes also have music.
They are open from morning to midnight, so it also is a great place for a lunch break when you walk around town. Just try those traditional dishes. Even a simple mamaliga cu brinza or placinta cu brinza is absolutely delicious. For a lighter taste chose brinza de vacii for a stronger taste brinza de oaie, which will make you just a little more thirsty.
