Description

Bendery is a city which is part of the historic region of Bessarabia, and today is officially known as Bender. Out of all the cities in Transdniestr, this is the greener on among them. During the civil war, the city underwent through rough turmoil and some its remains are there in the form of bullet holes. But, despite its history, yet the city is full of life with fun and friendly people. The impressive Ottoman fortress, outside the centre near the Bendery–Tiraspol bridge, was built in the 16th century and saw keen fighting between Turkish and Russian forces before falling to Tsarist Russia permanently in the early 19th century. You can walk along the ramparts taking in the fine views of the Dniestr River.
