Maiac (Ukrainian: Маяк; Russian: Маяк, Mayak) is an urban settlement (according to Transnistrian authorities), or city (according to the Moldovan legislation) in the Grigoriopol sub-district, Transnistria, Moldova, 13 km east of Grigoriopol, on the Ukrainian border.


In the 16th Century the village was named Janyk Hisar and Majak Geczit.[1]


The Transnistrian Radio and Television Center (TRTC) is located in Maiac. It is a large broadcasting centre for short- and mediumwave, which was built up in the years between 1968 and 1975. It covers an area of 9.5 km2., and housed at the end of 1980s 20 transmitters. In 1997, a 350 metres, and a 250 metres mast of the facility used for medium wave broadcasting collapsed as a result of icing.[2]

In October 2007 the Russian unitary enterprise Russian Television and Radio Networks acquired 100% of shares of the TRTC for $3,314,388.[3]
