Tighina County was a county (Romanian: județ) in the Kingdom of Romania.


The county was located in the eastern part of the Greater Romania, in the southeastern part of the historical region of Bessarabia, at the border with Soviet Union. At present, the territory of the former county is part of the Republic of Moldova. It was bordered to the west by Cahul County, to the north by Lăpuşna County, and to the south by Cetatea-Albă County. To the east was the Soviet border on the other side of the Dniester River.

The county was administrative subdivided into four districts (plăși):[1]

  1. Plasa Bulboaca, headquartered at Bulboaca
  2. Plasa Căușani, headquartered at Căușani
  3. Plasa Ceadâr-Lunga, headquartered at Ceadâr-Lunga
  4. Plasa Cimișlia, headquartered at Cimișlia

Tighina County had two urban localities: Tighina (urban commune and the county seat), and Comrat (an urban commune located in the western part of the county).


After the Union of Bessarabia with Romania in 1918, the county belonged to Romania, which set up the county formally in 1925.

After the 1938 Administrative and Constitutional Reform, this county merged with the counties of Lăpușna, Cetatea Albă and Orhei to form Ținutul Nistru.

The area county of the county was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940 and became part of the Moldavian SSR. The area returned to Romanian administration following the Axis Powers' invasion of the Soviet Union in July 1941. A military administration was established and the region's Jewish population was either executed on the spot or deported to Transnistria, where further numbers were killed.[2] As the Soviet Union's offensive pushed the Axis powers back, the area again was under Soviet control. On September 12, 1944, Romania signed the Moscow Armistice with the Allies. The Armistice, as well as the subsequent peace treaty of 1947, confirmed the Soviet-Romanian border as it was on January 1, 1941.[3][4] The area of the county, along with the rest of the Moldavian SSR, became part of the independent Republic of Moldova.
