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

Chisinau, Transnistria

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.

DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: House of Soviets, 25 Oktyabrya St., 101, Tiraspol Moldova

Are you ready to travel beyond borders, above quarantine? Virtual tour is a teaser, sneak peek, but it’s lifeboat for my family so I made it as close to real tour as possible. You will just dive behind the screen, I will show some jaw-down places where I haven’t took anyone on real tours even. Don’t be afraid to spoil your real trip with virtual, it is impossible to fit everything in a couple of hours, even a week of exploration is not enough to see and tell everything. Content of virtual tour may vary from listed below, actually I ready for sequence of two streams – combining Tiraspol and Bendery, city parts and abandoned parts. Transnistria is urbex paradise. Hope to see you soon in the material world, but by now, sit back and relax, see you online soon. And thank you for support, spasibo!

Top attractions listed here usually form only small part of the route, because my ideology is to show hidden gems that travelers wouldn’t find themselves. Subsequently that’s why places we actually go are not mentioned here. Let it be a surprise, okay? Also we may customize certain things on the shore or along the road, please check out brutal version of my tour, a few guys reacted that it’s better than Chernobyl. Luckily we don’t have radiation here but some lost places from gone era are really eerie. I can’t reveal abandoned places I discovered without risk that they will never immediately spoiled Andy taken by tourist industry. Transnistria is urbex paradise, it’s like Chernobyl before 1986 and after all-in-one, without crowds of people, without risk of radiation and low-cost. Anyway, what about House of Soviets – it is great example of Stalin ampire, must-see attraction and selfie-place in Tiraspol. Don’t forget to make photos – that is a proof of existence of Transnistria!

I didn’t add all hidden gems in between these listed attractions, but they are great to make the tour really unforgettable and contrast! Highly recommend brutal tour – some lost places we have here are more impressive than Chernobyl. My wife says no one should go to Chernobyl, but every other traveler I meet either just came from there or is heading there next. Luckily there was no radiation here, it was ussr collapse. Finally we have an option to go to some eerie lost places from gone era that will satisfy lovers of Tarkovsky cinematography or post-apocalyptic movies, it is a way to explore “exclusion zone” without radiation risk or crowds of people you definitely see around in actual Chernobyl exclusion zone. I also can’t reveal these places here, just make notice, adventurers, it’s also tour of a lifetime!

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Tiraspol, Tiraspol, Transnistria

For lovers of Tarkovsky cinematography, post-apocalyptic movies and USSR legacy there is a brutal version of the tour. Impressive soviet lost places and Chernobyl style cityscapes of Transnistria will make your heart beat faster and leave you speechless, I can’t reveal where we go without the risk of subsequent demolition of these eerie gems, but I guarantee unforgettable trip. It is also important to keep these urban wastelands a secret for keeping melancholic atmosphere of solitude, you know, the best and only way to explore such things is to do it alone, let’s keep it this way. No one can predict how long these communism remains will be accessible so the whole idea is to discover everything while it still exists and do it without overcrowd of people. In a way, this journey is a chance to explore a version of Chernobyl “exclusion zone” without crowds of tourists that overfill real Pripyat and actual Chernobyl exclusion zone. There is no radiation here luckily, it’s not radiation that killed the place, it’s perestroika. We can do a combo of beautiful hidden views of Tiraspol and views of abandoned beauty of decay.

Duration: 30 minutes
