Tiraspol, Transnistria must-see tour - available online livestream version too

star-5

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.
