Day Trip to Transnistria from Odessa

1. Day Trip to Transnistria from Odessa

The trip to Transnistria starts with the transfer from your hotel in Odessa to Tiraspol by a private vehicle. The distance from Odessa to Tiraspol is 104 kilometers and, halfway there, you will pass the border between Ukraine and Transnistria. (Please, check the VISA requirements to enter Transinstria before the trip).  Visiting Transnistria is like traveling on a time machine – not much has changed there since the end of the 20th century. The cities of Bender and Tiraspol, retain many remnants of the Soviet Union. Old-fashioned public transport, numerous monuments to Lenin and Soviet symbolism on the buildings all make a trip to Transnistria a different experience. Your local guide will tell you about the current political situation of the country and show you all the most important attractions of Tiraspol. Then you will travel to the city of Bender and discover its famous sight, Festung Tighina, built in the 16th century. Medieval Bender Fortress played an important role in the Russian-Turkish War in the 18-19th centuries. You will enjoy a spectacular view of the Dniester River from the high fortress’s walls.  Later, in your free time, you may have lunch at one of the city’s cafés (optional, own expense). Thereafter, you will return to Odessa back to your hotel.

... just came back from the trip. . Perfect organization - thanks for supporting despite of difficult situation with CoronaVirus ... (March 2020) Everything was more than expected. We are really inspired about the chain of supporting people. ...Olga from who organized everything, our driver Żenia from Odessa, local driver in Nadniestrze (Tiaspol citizen who had to wake up at 4.30 a.m to wait for us in Odessa morning), Katia (perfect Tiraspol introduction and visiting + nice English) and finally Adriej who takes us from Nadniestrze border and show us Bendery City... very professional and helpful guy - what's more his English was perfect and his knowledge about history and current situation is on professional level ++++ ... Even if Nadniestrze seems be crazy place for majority people (personally we like it very much but we understand that not everybody can like this) again many thanx for perfect organization, support and finding solution for all cases
