Memorials to those who fought in Transniester wars from the 1800s on. Some Russian, Hungarian, Moldovan. This region has a very complex history of wars back and forth, most recently 1990 to 1992. Worth a stop since you are there anyway

We had a day tour through Bender, this was our first stop with our guide. The cemetery is very well kept and has many sections from different war periods. You can't miss this place with its wonderful entrance, it's a nice photo op.

This cemetery contains the graves of soldiers of many countries - not only this one - who died for their country: Russians, who came in the eighteenth century with Potemkin, Swedes, who came with Charles XII (at the end of the path on the left),...More
