About the fortress

The Bendery fortress is one of the oldest structures in our region. Back in the 13th century, Genoese ships sailed here from the Black Sea from the Akkerman fortress along the Dniester River. Seafarers and merchants, on the high right bank of the river, build a fortress-factory in order to protect themselves and their goods, and most importantly, the existing crossing.

In the citadel, in the building of an old Turkish powder magazine, a museum has been created and is operating. Also on the territory of the fortress there is an exhibition hall and much more.

In Bendery, on August 29, they celebrated the 225th anniversary of the 55th Podolsk Infantry Regiment. Every year, the celebration takes place under the auspices of the PMR Ministry of Internal Affairs and brings together defenders of the republic from various law enforcement agencies: law enforcement agencies, the army and the Black Sea Cossack Army. At the Military-Historical Memorial Complex, parade squads of the Tiraspol Law Institute and the Republican Cadet Corps of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the PMR, army and Cossack units met the President of the PMR. The guests of honor were the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Moldova Oleg Vasnetsov and his wife. Representatives of various government bodies attended the celebration. Also taking part in the events were the Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaly Neagu and the heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The bells announced the holiday dedicated to the Russian soldiers who defended their Motherland without sparing their lives in former times and who continue to keep peace on the banks of the Dniester today. The connection between times was emphasized by numerous historical touches. Cadets of the law institute, dressed in clothing modeled after the military uniform of the era of Catherine II, were carrying the banner of the 55th Podolsk Infantry Regiment and the Russian military standard. The banners and icons were held by employees of the Dniester SOBR. All of them rightfully consider themselves heirs of the military victories of many generations of soldiers and officers who more than once defended the freedom of the Fatherland: soldiers of the Russian Empire, Soviet soldiers, defenders of Transnistria and military peacekeepers. At the ancient military cemetery, near the Chapel of the Image of Jesus Christ Not Made by Hands, a prayer service was held, commemorating the Russian warriors who died and died from their wounds. At the Orthodox Cross, they remembered the battle path of the heroic infantrymen of the 55th Podolsk Regiment. They fought with the Swedes, French, Poles, Hungarians, Turks, Japanese, and participated in large-scale military campaigns of the Russian Empire, in many difficult battles and assaults. Those present laid flowers at the memorial sign. “There is an axiom: without memory there is no continuity of generations,” President of Pridnestrovie Vadim Krasnoselsky emphasized to those gathered. – In Transnistria, everything is in order with both memory and conscience. There will be no bright future without history and without respect for our ancestors, for those who defended their Motherland. I don’t know where else in the post-Soviet space there are memorials of such content and essence, where else regimental holidays are celebrated. I am convinced that Pridnestrovie will have a good history, a good future.” Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Moldova Oleg Vasnetsov, addressing those present, noted: “I would like to sincerely thank the initiators of the creation of this pantheon of memory. Here, in this place, you especially feel the pain and loss of those people who laid down their lives for our lives. This was many centuries ago. And that was very recently. And our main task is not only to preserve the memory, to convey the truth to the younger generation, but also, most importantly, to educate our heirs in the best traditions that we received from our ancestors.” The event participants also bowed their heads at a composition of black granite slabs in memory of the defenders and civilians of Bendery who died in 1992. We did not ignore the Poklonny Cossack Cross located next door. As a sign of respect for those who more than once defeated enemies on the battlefields, flowers were laid at the foot of the obelisk with an eagle spreading its wings, erected on the 100th anniversary of the victory in the Patriotic War of 1812. The parade squads of the current defenders of the Fatherland marched in a solemn march, paying tribute to the memory of the feat of Russian soldiers. The celebrations ended on the territory of the Historical Military Memorial Complex “Bendery Fortress”. In the temple of the holy noble prince Alexander Nevsky, a brave warrior and commander who laid down his life for the preservation of the Russian land during the difficult times of foreign rule, a litiya was served for the dead.
