Transnistria is a disputed region in Eastern Europe. It declared independency in 1990, but it was never recognized as a sovereign country. Transnistria is located mostly in a strip between the Dniester River and Ukraine. Moldova is on the other side of the river Dniester but considers Transnistria as their own territory.

Wikitravel writes that in Transnistria, hitchhiking is a common way of getting arround.

It seems that Transnistra has huge problems with corruption.
