This city on the Dniester, which serves as the capital of the breakaway republic of Transdniestria, is a living museum of Soviet culture. Tiraspol still has its share of Lenin statues, but it has few restaurants or cafes. The only remarkable examples of Western conveniences or services are all overseen by sheriffs. Tiraspol is very beautiful in the warm months, when the riverbanks turn green. Attractions in the city include the Pokrova (Intercession of the Virgin) Church, the ruins of the Srednyaya Fortress (on the outskirts of town) and the Republican Drama and Comedy Theater. 40 mi/60 km southeast of Chisinau.
