Photographer's Note

An architectural gem of the 16th century, Bender Fortress is located near the medieval city of Bender on the right bank of the Dniestr River. Originally built as a wooden fort, it was developed into a full structure during the Ottoman period and was of great historical importance. Made of limestone and brick, it is now surrounded by a Russian military zone with a checkpoint at its entrance.
