A small return to the USSR for a day, to say "I was there" .., to discover a territory without territory ... .., a country without a country ... The political situation is still complex today with Moldova, the tension is palpable but not dangerous for a foreign tourist.

This included visits to the underground labyrinth, collection room, wine making operation, and concluded with a sit down wine tasting.
