Moldova is seldom visited, and this separatist Russian-speaking region is as off the beaten track as you can get when travelling in Europe. A fraught truce between local officials and national government has been in place since 1992, when Transdniestr maintains it won its independence. Tourists, of which there are very few, enter a fascinating time-warp as they explore the region; you can barely move for busts of Lenin and other Soviet iconography. It makes an interesting day trip, and the rest of the country has plenty of attractions as well: its wine-tourism industry is growing fast.
