Inquiring with our partner in the capital Chisinau tells us that Moldova can be visited ‘normally’, just like the renegade region of Transnistria. Given that the country borders Ukraine, which is currently still in a bloody war – although quite far away from Moldova – a visit is not quite common at the moment. But possible and safe.

The border with the renegade and in principle pro-Russian region of Transnistria is also open and the non-existent country can be visited as well.
