"Kvint (short for: Kon’iaki, vina i napitki Tiraspol’ia) is a wine- and brandy distillery based in Tiraspol, the administrative center of Transnistria (Moldova). Locals consider Kvint a national symbol."

.
"One thing a Transnistrian certainly can (and does) brag about is the famous Kvint brandy. Established in 1879, the Kvint distillery is the oldest enterprise still in operation in this pseudo-state. A survivor of all the ups and downs of the Soviet Union—including an ill-fated attempt at complete national Prohibition in the mid-1980s that wiped out many of the CCCP's other alcohol producers."

.
.
"The distillery's total revenues are some $50 million annually, an amount equivalent to 5 percent of Transnistria's estimated $1 billion Gross Domestic Product."

"Kvint is particularly recognised within Eastern Europe for its brandies, which have won more than 100 medals at international competitions. Kvint produces its brandy using the same methods as cognac – but because the name cognac is reserved only for the alcohol made from certain grapes twice-distilled in copper alembics in the region surrounding the city of Cognac, France, Kvint differentiates its rich brandy by using the Moldovan word for the drink, divin." #Kvint #Tiraspol #Transnistria #Pridnestrovie #Moldova #Maadventures #brandy #divin #cognac #travel #travelling #igtravel #matka #matkailu #lonelyplanet #bbctravel #iamtb #TLpicks #travelgram #guardiantravelsnaps #backpacking #thisismyeurope #visiteurope #wanderout #livetravelchannel #mondolöytö #visitmoldova #localsmd #igmoldova #moldovamea

It had rained heavily (of course I didn't have/buy an umbrella) and when I finally found a place that shows Liverpool's match, the waitress simply started to laugh when I stepped inside the bar and she saw me (I looked like a drowned rat). Liverpool won 0-4 and beer was good.

Raining cats and dogs. "The approach to the memorial from the central part of the park is known as the Alley of Heroes. It contains the graves of a number of prominent figures who were killed during the defence of Odessa in the autumn of 1941 and its liberation in April 1944." #Odessa #Ukraine #memorial #WWII #rain #sky #Maadventures #travel #travelling #igtravel #matkalla #matkailu #lonelyplanet #bbctravel #iamtb #TLpicks #travelgram #guardiantravelsnaps #backpacking #thisismyeurope #visiteurope #wanderout #selfie #finnish #man #livetravelchannel #mondolöytö #igukraine #Украина #одесса

An eternal flame. "This obelisk is a memorial to the sailors of the Black Sea Fleet who died during the siege of Odessa in August-October 1941 and its liberation in April 1944.

The memorial stands at the edge of Taras Shevchenko Park (парк имени Тараса шевченка), overlooking Odessa’s Port and the Black Sea.  The honour guard of cadets stands at the memorial mainly on public holidays and for ceremonial occasions." #Odessa #Ukraine #monument #eternalflame #fire #war #memorial #WWII #sky #Maadventures #travel #travelling #igtravel #matkalla #matkailu #lonelyplanet #bbctravel #iamtb #TLpicks #travelgram #guardiantravelsnaps #backpacking #thisismyeurope #visiteurope #wanderout #livetravelchannel #mondolöytö #igukraine #Украина #одесса
