Overview

Transnistria is a must place to visit if you are interested in the history of the USSR in Moldova. This "dissident republic" is still politically and economically aligned with Russia and feels very different from other parts of Moldova. Visit the town of Tighina with its medieval fortress, Chitcani and its religious complex, and Tiraspol with its Soviet architecture. As this is a private tour, you can ask plenty of questions throughout the tour and enjoy a more personalized experience.
  • Discover the history of the USSR in Transnistria and its pro-Russian identity
  • See monuments dedicated to Soviet architecture and Lenin
  • Travel between sites with ease in a private vehicle
  • Enjoy undivided attention from the guide on this private tour

a very "different" tourist experience

This a definitely a very "different" tourist experience - you can rarely visit a little know breakaway republic tucked away in a forgotten corner of Europe. This was a private tour and was very good - we think we got a feel for the place. Gloria took us through all the main sites - not just the USSR nostalgia ones, but also a monastery and an Ottoman fortress

Transnistra is an absolute one off: nothing quite like it. Andrian knows this place well, navigating both sides of the border and the delicate space in between. I'm grateful to him and Catalina for a day of adventure I'll never forget.

Moldova, Tag 2/2

Wenn man nur 2 ganze Tage in Moldova zur Verfügung hat, muss man natürlich gut auswählen, und so entschied ich mich bei Tag 2 für diese Tour... :) Bei schönstem Wetter von Guide Maria am Hotel abgeholt, ging es auf dieser individuellen Tour nun zurück in die Vergangenheit und in eine gefühlt völlig andere Region... :O Dabei gab es unterwegs sehr viel wissenswertes zu erfahren und es konnten jede Menge Eindrücke gesammelt und Fotos geschossen werden... :D War ein super Tag; vielen Dank an Maria & Agency... :)
