Turkmenistan holidays and unrecognized countries tourism

Somaliland holidays and unrecognized countries tourism? Surrounded by beautiful nature and composed of a good-looking old city and houses, Aqrah (or Akre) is a pretty, photogenic town and one of the most beautiful places to visit in Iraqi Kurdistan. Its history is a bit uncertain and I never found much information about it, but it’s a pleasant place to walk around and meet some nice locals. I actually met there a very interesting man named Ramzi, a 50-something-year-old dude who had lived in Austria for many years, yet, he had to come back because Saddam Hussein threatened to kill his family if he didn’t come back. He also told me a recent sad story about the Islamic State killing his brother, in revenge because he was working as a translator for the Americans. If you want to know more about him, read my Tales of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Transnistria is a thin strip of land wedged between Moldova and Ukraine. It is home to more than 500,000 people and has a parliamentary government, a standing army, and its own currency. A forgotten remnant of the Soviet Union, Transnistria is an unrecognized country hidden behind a heavily militarized border between Moldova and Ukraine. More correctly known as the ‘Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic’ (or ‘PMR’), Transnistria is one of a number of frozen conflict zones that emerged following the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union. One of the most notable things about Transnistria (and Tiraspol in particular) is the prevalence of Soviet symbology. While socialist monuments and busts of Lenin may still be commonplace in other former-USSR nations such as Ukraine, Belarus and Russia, Transnistria goes one step further, actually referring to itself as a ‘soviet state.’ Communist motifs appear everywhere from schools and universities, to the nation’s hammer-and-sickle flag.

Some ethnologists trace the roots of the Abkhaz to the Heniochi, a fierce tribe documented by Ancient Greek explorers, while others believe their progenitors were Kartvelian (Georgian). Regardless of their origin, everyone agrees that Abkhazians are a culturally distinct Caucasian ethnic group; they have their own language, customs, and pantheon of nature gods (though the majority of Abkhazians today practice Abkhazian Orthodox Christianity and, to a lesser extent, Islam).
In the past, their claims for independence were based primarily on the right to national self-determination, historical continuity and claim for a remedial right to secession, based on alleged human-rights violations. Since 2005, official representatives of several unrecognized countries have repeatedly emphasised the importance of democracy promotion in their political entities. A possible explanation of this phenomenon is in the belief that those states which have demonstrated their economic viability and promote the organization of a democratic state, should have their sovereignty recognized. This being because of the understanding that legitimacy is gained through democracy. Find extra info on www.politicalholidays.com.
