…Transnistria now has a tourism brand.
That's right, everyone’s favorite living museum of the Soviet Union has decided to market itself through Special Advertising Sections in the Guardian.
How the hell do you market Transnistria, the land that 1989 forgot and home of the world's largest arsenal of illeagal weapons...to tourists? Why, with these little gems of course:
--“Compared to Moldova, this is ‘like the Riviera’”
--“Standard of living: ‘Visibly higher’”
--"Kids are playing computer games"
--"16 types of hamburger toppings"
Big thanks to Aleksandr Griboyedov over at Leopolis for the heads-up on all of this insanity.
