I do postcards with my drawings and budget tours to top attractions and hidden gems of Transnistria. Honestly, I can’t make Maldives of my country, because it is not Maldives. But i can make an unforgettable journey through all contrasts of what it really is - beautiful panoramas and impressive soviet lost places, curious history and nowadays life in the country that doesn't exist, combining classic walk with forays for true explorers and adventurers. Now I started virtual tour, it is a teaser, a sneak peek, but I made it as close to real tours as possible. Everything can be customized, there is no Stalinism, we will decide where to go and what to talk about along the way. Default route is 2 hours, I will show my favorite bits of Tiraspol and Bendery, first part - city, second part - urbex. You can use smartphone or notebook web-browser, and write your questions and comments in chat in same window. There will be jaw-down abandoned USSR places where I never took real tours before.

Today I invite you to discover Transnistria. The old USSR is still alive and well in this autonomous region. It is a breakaway territory within the internationally recognized borders of Moldova. The country's national coat of arms still includes the traditional hammer and sickle and the Lenin statue hasn't yet been pulled down. This communist state is called "the last remaining Stalinist dictatorship in Europe". First stop is at Bender Fortress. In 1713, the fortress, the town, and the neighboring village Varniţa were the site of skirmishes (kalabalik) between Charles XII of Sweden, who had taken refuge there with the Cossack Hetman Ivan Mazepa after his defeat in the Battle of Poltava. After it, we will tour the city of Tiraspol, the capital of Transnistria and drive north up to Dubassary city, along the Dniester River. You will be amazed about the communist monuments still to be seen on the way and about small towns like Grigoriopol and Dubasari!

4-Day Tour Of Moldova

4-Day Tour Of Moldova

One of Moldova's characteristic traits is its ethnic diversity.

That's why this tour is the best way for you to know better Moldova's ethnic diversity.
