WELCOME TO GAGAUZIA

by Vasili Vikhliaev

If you want to go to a place no one has ever heard of, you don’t have to go to Africa, Asia or South America. Just travel to the border of EU, to Romania. Cross this border and you are in Moldova. If that’s not exotic enough, you can travel south until you almost reach the border to Ukraine. Stop when you see the sign “GAGAUZIYA”.

Now you will find yourself in a place with less that 1 tourist a year. People there have turkic roots but they are russian orthodox. They speak a turkic language but mainly russian. It’s as exotic as can be and you don’t have to leave Europe to come to a 3rd world country. The poorest region of the poorest country in europe. Enjoy your stay.

Welcome! Добро пожаловать! Karşılama!
