2. Transnistria

This is a narrow strip of land between the Dniester river and the Ukrainian border that broke away from Moldova in 1990. As an unrecognised state, it’s somewhat stuck in time.

Old war monuments still remain, and you can take an old Soviet trolleybus to their capital city of Tiraspol.
