Views of the city of Tiraspol
Sent by Scripchenco from Tiraspol, Moldova.
Tiraspol (IPA: [tɪˈraspəl]; Russian and Ukrainian: Тирасполь) is internationally recognised as the second largest city in Moldova, but is effectively the capital and administrative centre of the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). The city is located on the eastern bank of the Dniester River. Tiraspol is a regional hub of light industry, such as furniture and electrical goods production.
The modern city of Tiraspol was founded by the Russian generalissimo Alexander Suvorov in 1792, although the area had been inhabited for thousands of years by varying ethnic groups. The city celebrates its anniversary every year on October 14. (read further)
