A lot of tourists that arrived to Odessa had been asking us to see something unusual that is very rarely seen by regular tourists. Once, in August 2016 during peak tourist season we were asked several times by groups of British, American and Swedish tourists about possibility to see Transnistria and Chisinau with an English speaking guide while they were visiting Odessa for a couple of days. Following the most impostant business principle: if there is a demand there must be supply we finally found a guide who lived in Transnistria for 27 years and moved to Odessa a couple of years ago.

On 19-th October 2016 it was the first tour from Odessa to Tiraspol and Chisinau. Our clients were so impressed, amazed and happy with the tour that we carefully worked on the route for several months, chose the best places of interest to check out, received necessary licenses to easily cross the borders with foreign tourists and finally as of March 2017 we are proud to offer Exclusive Transnistria and Moldova from Odessa tour with a local English speaking professional guide that will reveal everything he knows about this amazing place - a so called country that doesn't exist.

During this tour our guide will shorlty acknowledge you with history of Transnistria - country which functions since 1990 as a state with very limited recognition that claims territory to the East of the Dniester river. You will see that despite Transnistria's non-recognition, it actually has legislative and executive authorities as well as an army, it's own constitution, flag, emblem and anthem. Citizens of Transnistria have their own currency - Transnistrian ruble and passports, which are invalid absolutely everywhere but Transnistria.

We will walk through the main street of Tiraspol, will see Soviet style building of mayor's office in Tiraspol and Parliament building, many statues of Lenin, kiosks where newspapers are sold (yes, people that live here read more newspapers than spend time online) and will visit a local flea market where very cheap stuff is sold. In central bookshop that we will visit on our walking part of a tour you will be able to buy some souvenirs with Soviet symbolic, like mugs, calendars, postcards and some brochures.

You will witness unique kolkhoz in Transnistria with the name Put Lenina (The Lenin Way). The kolkhoz - a residue of the Soviet period - is a collective farm which belongs to the state and most probably will see children in the countryside that are involved in the household from a very early age, sometimes having to work as hard as adults.

You will have an opportunity to mail a postcard from a country that doesn't exist to yourself or maybe to your relatives or friends from a central post office in Tiraspol. Just imagine how cool it is to receive a postcard from a country that officially does not exist and is not on the map, huh? ;)
