Park alongside Dniestr River Mar 20, 2016
If, like me, you found the riverside in Tiraspol a bit bleak and underwhelming, then you might be pleasantly surprised by Bendery. Not a lot, but a little. The riverside park here has far better views of the water, and is better kept. Many couples have professed their love by locking a padlock onto the railings, and there are signs of cafes or bars here in summer, although these stood empty in March. There's even a little funfair, although again that was not operating even though it was a sunny day and plenty people were strolling about.

I'm not sure what the ship was doing in the long grass though. From the lower section of the park, look right to see some rusting abandoned ships and a huge eerie derelict "river station", and left to see the bridge over the Dniestr painted in the colours of the Transnistrian and Russian flags. In summer, there are beaches on the other bank, which must have good views of Bendery Fortress further upstream.
