Béla Szandelszky... Transnistria. "...Forget Cuba. There is only one place left in the world where you can experience Soviet-style communism as it really was: Transnistria. It's a rebel republic wedged between the former Soviet states of Moldova and Ukraine, cut off from the Black Sea by a slither of Ukrainian territory. Since it broke away from Moldova after brief but fierce fighting in 1992, time has stood still: Statues of Lenin dominate Transnistria unrecognised capital, Tiraspol, and its rubber-stamp parliament is still called the Supreme Soviet."
