Return to the USSR - Excursion in Transnistria

Return to the USSR - Excursion in Transnistria

star-5

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.

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.

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 VarniĆŁa 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!

We offer you an excursion dedicated to one of the regions of Moldova: "Gagauzia". This little-known region is located in the south of Moldova. It is populated by the Gagauz, a Turkish-speaking population largely Russified and historically close to the Turks of Anatolia. They thus speak a Turkish dialect (but also Russian) and they are Orthodox Christians (and not Muslims). Historically, the Turkish-speaking Christians of Bulgaria, the "Gök-oğuz" or Gagauz, were established here in 1812, among the Moldovans, when the Russian Empire annexed Bessarabia.
