Museum sights in Transdniestr
- Sort by:
The Tiraspol National United Museum is the closest the city has to a local history museum, with an exhibit focusing on poet Nikolai Dimitriovich Zelinskogo, who founded the first Soviet school of chemistry. Opposite is the Presidential Palace, from where Igor Smirnov rules his mini-empire. The enormous ploshchad Konstitutii is bordered by ulitsa 25 Oktober and the park-lined concrete promenade along the Dniestr, a popular strolling area.
The neoclassical House of Soviets (Dom Sovetov) towers over the eastern end of ulitsa 25 Oktober. Lenin's angry-looking bust peers out from its prime location smack in front of the building. Inside the building is a memorial to those who died in the 1992 conflict. Close by is the military-themed Museum of Headquarters .
