Parcani (Romanian: Parcani; Bulgarian: Паркани, Parkani; Ukrainian: Паркани, Parkany; Russian: Парканы, Parkany) is a large commune and village in the Slobozia sub-district of Transnitria, a de facto independent entity within the internationally recognized borders of Moldova. The village has a population of around 10,500, of whom 95% are ethnic Bulgarians (Bessarabian Bulgarians). The first Bulgarian colonists arrived in the village in the early 19th century.[1] According to some sources, it is the largest Bulgarian-majority village outside the borders of Bulgaria.[2] A monument to Bulgarian national hero Vasil Levski was unveiled in Parcani in September 2008.[3]

The village lies between Tiraspol and Tighina; it is serviced by the trolleybus line between the two cities.
