  • Money: Transnistrian Rubles

    Tiraspol Transportation

    For the short hop over to Bender, there are two choices; marshrutka or trolleybus. I'd never taken a trolleybus before, so hopped on the first one that passed through Suvorov Square. It was standing room only inside, and the conductor could barely reach all the passengers. I handed over a 10 ruble note and got a handful of change, being unable to...

    Orhei Things to Do

    Orheiul Vechi is probably the great sight of Moldova although it's hard to define exactly why the place is so fascinating.

The main rock monastery was an empty shell until a decade ago but now...
