The strange little self-governing autonomous region of Transnistria and its capital Tiraspol, with all its Soviet/Russian iconography and culture. 
The Castle (Bender Fortress) is actually on the Moldovan side (full disclosure), but everything else is in the quirky little, Russian-supported and leaning tiny little country. I’m a fan of quirky and of independent identity, so Transnistria was an unexpectedly interesting two day stop-off for me. We did get denied from leaving via our chosen border post, so had a massive backtracking detour. That’ll teach us not to do more research into things we had never envisaged, or considered 🙄 It also has its own currency, very few English-speakers and very few establishments accept Visa cards and so I don’t recommend ordering a beer (or food) without first getting cash.

Chisinau, Moldova. It was good to rest at a hostel for two days and meet a few fellow travellers, as we haven’t bumped into many fellow non-locals on our travels for the last few countries. #moldova #chisinau #nightphotography #cycletour #cycletouring #easterneurope

Remembering my first hitchhike experience ever. Luckily jumped into the car of a civil engineer, and he lead us through the highway he was building, which was almost done. We drove crazy on the empty road, listend  to some rock, and I captured this beautiful chapel on the roadside with the golden field. Such an magic country.

Czasem w życiu jest tak, że pewnych rzeczy nie da się opisać słowami. Ja mam tak z zeszłorocznym koncertem Lorn na @uptodatefestival. Jak ktoś mnie spyta jak było, to od dzisiaj odsyłam do tego zdjęcia.

Dnes sme navštívili Kremeľ, v ktorom sa nachádza prezidentský palác, niekoľko chrámov s pozlátenými kupolami a podobne.😀🕌 Pri zvonici Ivana Veľkého je dokonca najväčší zvon na svete,🔔 a o niekoľko metrov ďalej nájdete aj najväčšie delo na svete. Mna osobne zaujal príbeh, ktorý sa spája s už spomínaným zvonom.🔔🔔🔔 Takže, volá sa Car-kolokol, čiže cársky zvon. Vyrobil ho ruský majster Ivan Fiodorovič Motorin so svojím synom Michailom. Na jeho výzdobe pracovalo mnoho umelcov až 2 roky.🔨 Je vyrobený z bronzu a meria 6,14 m na výšku, 6,6 m v priemere.🙀
Váži až 216 ton, pričom ten odlomený kúsok, ktorý vidíte na fotke, váži 11,5 tony.

A prečo je zvon prasknutý?🤔
Jedného dňa došlo k požiaru, a pri hasení ohňa studenou vodou to zvon proste nezvládol a kvôli prudkému ochladeniu praskol.🤦‍♀️ (Naozaj nechcem vedieť, aká rana to musela byť.😆) Zvon bol teda plne funkčný, ale stalo sa to, čo sa stalo, a zvon nestihol nikdy zazvoniť.
Škoda, že?😀

There was no hunter's lodge, but place
to hide from tears and laugh of fays;
one morning 'fabled' turned to 'real'.
Today there's no soul to appeal.

The ancient village of Perast was once fought over by the Byzantine empire, Venice, Austria-Hungary, and France. Each of these forces left their architectural and cultural imprint on this small city.
.
.
Today, the village is most known for the nearby island called #OurLadyOfTheRocks that is deeply intertwined with history and folklore. It is said that local seafarers often faced rough seas while making their way back home through the Adriatic channels of the Bay of Kotor. When they finally neared Perast, they would symbolically drop a rock to symbolize their gratitude for safe passage. Over generations, these rocks built the foundation of an island, upon which a church was built. Folklore says that local couples wishing to be married have to row by hand to the island and drop a rock for good fortune 🔮🏔

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallin, Estonia - August 2019.
🇪🇪
- - -
This orthodox Cathedral, standing in the heart of the city, cannot not astound you - it’s architecture, it’s domes, all about it embodies the Eastern European architecture.
Tallin literally blew my mind and stole my heart. It’s paved streets, its old buildings, it’s delicious cuisine... There is nothing not to like about it - especially its vibrant cultural scene - just like the Kadriorg PLace which is now an Art Museum. 
Tallin definitely entered my fav’ top 10 cities list.

The ancient, limestone houses of Perast village on the #BokoBay echo the historic influences from the many forces that clamored to maintain claim over the village. Amazingly, for such a small town, you can find sixteen #Baroque palaces and nineteen churches in Perast!
.
. 
The tranquil, narrow alleyways that cross-cross through the village are fragrant with wisteria and local residents sell pomegranate wine from their front windows. Such a beautiful city to explore! .
