Meaning & History

Means "beyond the river Dniester", derived from Latin trans meaning "across, beyond" combined with the Romanian noun Nistru meaning "the river Dniester".

This is the name of a region in Eastern Europe, which is located east of the Dniester river. The region is home to a post-Soviet breakaway state of the same name, which is bordered by the countries of Moldova and Ukraine. This state has extremely limited recognition: it is recognised by only three other states, all of whom are mostly non-recognised themselves.
