Do you know Transnistria? It’s a region of Moldova (on the border with Ukraine) which declared its independence in 1990, and which is still full of communist symbols and statues in the streets.

They also have one of the 20 tallest chimneys in the world, located in Dnestrovsc. It’s 335 meters (1099 ft) tall and it’s part of the huge “Moldavskaya Gres-5”.
