The Republic of Moldova was Soviet for almost 50 years and it has left its mark, one is Transnistria. And why not a trip to the pro-Russian separatist region of Transnistria? A small return to the USSR for a day, to say "I was there" .., to discover a territory without territory ... .., a country without a country ... The political situation is still complex today with Moldova, the tension is palpable but not dangerous for a foreign tourist.

Wish the tour company wouldve told me that i could add in another winery in morning... and that there were 3 cars there for 3 separate people...surely we couldve gone in 1 car and cut cost? So not impressed by the company who took us out there...but the tour was amazing."

* A traveler said: "Me and my wife (we are a couple from Sweden, 55+) visited Chisinau in Moldova for a long week-end by the end of May 2019. "BestMoldova" was the local tour agency that organised this tour. Without to many details and word, they simply have done an EXCELLENT job! All was perfect, the flexibility to try to help us due to our delayed flight, the high knowledge of all guides, drivers, the warm hearts, the genuine spirit. And speaking about the tours, very interesting to visit Bender and Tirasopol in Transnistria, to hear and feel on my own this complicated part of Europe, the wine testing at Cricova was very good, professional and once again, the local guise in Cricova plus the driver of the minitrain were extremely friendly and took good carer of us.

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.

Full day tour takes eight hours default, though Transnistria deserves at least a week. It is not Stalinism, we are very volatile where to go and what to do, but default route covers must-see USSR era and modern bits of Tiraspol, Bendery and optionallly Kitskany, and my favorite nooks and crannies that I discovered doing my sketches. The trip wont be exhausting, not boring at all, we will have time to talk about all peculiarities of past and present of Transnistria, you won’t be meeting a guide, you will be meeting a friend!

Make your way from the city of Chisinau to Moldova’s underground wine city and cellar, Milestii Mici. Here, 124-miles (200-kilometers) of ancient, underground structures and halls are kept at a wine-friendly temperature of 54–57°F (12–14°C). Take a guided walk through the city’s underground “streets” each named for a different wine and wander among the 2-million bottles of vintages in this Guinness Book of World Record holding cellar.

* A traveler said: "Moldova is renown for its wine, and Milestii Mici offers a wonderful opportunity to experience that reason first hand. At a total length of around 200 km and with nearly 2 million bottles, it rightfully boasts having the largest wine cellars in the world. I was picked up promptly at my AirBnB and ferried along with one other passenger to the winery, which is about 20 km from the Moldovan capital Chisinau. We teamed up with a guide and drove underground until we reached a location where we left the vehicles and proceeded, along with a dozen or so others, on a 20-30 minute walk through the cellar. NOTE: Bring a jacket. It gets chilly underground. The extravagant wine enthusiast can even rent a spot in the cellar in which to store those more precious bottles. At the end of the tour, we were led to a tasting room, given three generous jugs of different wines to try, accompanied by some tasty savory snacks and serenaded by musicians. The whole thing was very convivial and was a perfect introduction to the Moldovan wine scene. My only regret is that I can't seem to find their wine here in the US."

* A traveler said: "I booked the business excursion. After booking I received confirmation including my pick up time from my hotel. Anna was my guide. She was very nice and knowledgeable. After a 20 minute drive to Cricova winery, I joined the tour which the winery does. This included visits to the underground labyrinth, collection room, wine making operation, and concluded with a sit down wine tasting. The tasting included three wines with enough additional pours that I had a buzz leaving. Anna drove me back to my hotel. The entire tour took 3-4 hours total. I would recommend this tour to those who want a taste of Moldovan wine."

* A traveler said: "I traveled to Orhei and Cricova on my second day in Moldova. Fortunately, I knew my guide Nicolai and, therefore, knew that I would learn much and have an enjoyable day. I definitely did. In the morning, Nicolai drove us to a lovely church and provided great insight. We then journeyed to Old Orhei, stopping in several places to take great photos. As always, Nicolai proved to be a great guide, answering all my questions and being a great companion. In the afternoon, we visited Cricova. Cricova is a bit fancier than Milestii Mici; more elaborate (but not as fun to visit). I recommend visiting both Milestii Mici and Cricova, though, such that the wineries can be compared. Once again, I must thank Nicolai for being a great guide and taking such good care of me. cheers"

Transnistria has preserved a lot of Soviet monuments, equipment, attractive places and facts that will be interesting for everyone to learn. Visiting Transnistria is like traveling on a time machine – not much has changed there since nowadays. The cities of Bender and Tiraspol, keep many soviet monuments, with a specific architecture. You should come to Transnistria especially if you’re from a country that was never a part of the Soviet Bloc or controlled by it. It will help you understand what the daily reality was like for millions of people in the Soviet Union. You’ll visit practically almost fully conserved ‘museum’ of Soviet times.

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!
