Encyclopedia > Dniester River

The river Dniestr (in Polish and Russian; Nistru in Romanian; Дністер, Dnister in Ukrainian; Tyras in Latin; also known as Dniester) is a river in Eastern Europe. It rises in Ukraine, near the border with Poland, and flows toward the Black Sea. For a short while it marks the border of Ukraine and Moldova, after this on the east bank is the breakaway region of Transnistria. It leaves this region and becomes the international border again, then flows through Ukraine to the Black Sea.
