Starting with a train journey from Romania we then head to Moldova; Europe's least visited country. After a two day tour of the small Eastern European state, we then move on to a 'country that doesn't exist'. Transnistria is a breakaway state on the Eastern edge of Moldova. Although, it is not recognized by the U.N, it is essentially a fully functioning state with its own border control, government, police and army. It is the last remaining place in Europe that still has a hammer and sickle on its flag. Referred to as everything from an 'ancient Soviet relic' to 'a taste of North Korea in Europe', it is certainly one of the continent's most unique places.
