There really isn't very much to do or see in Tiraspol, so when you see a building as wonderful as this, you immediately stop and look. It's quite a beautiful piece of architecture and the bright white facade stands out like a light among the...More

This little church stands out among the Soviet-era architecture in the city. While simple outside (and crumbling paint), the interior is absolutely gorgeous. It's an operating place of worship, and you should dress conservatively. Women were covering their hair.
