Take a guided tour of Moldova's second largest city. Stop at Bender Fortress, Noul Neamt Monastery, gaze from the Bell Tower - the tallest in Eastern Europe and then stop by Mimi Winery - one of the world's top 15 wine castles.

DAY 01

Bender fortress - noul neamt monastery - bell tower

  • Begin this trip with your Moldovan tour guide to explore Tiraspol, the capital of Transnistria, and then visit Tighina (Bender) fortress- which used to be an important trade-post in ancient times. This fortress is an architectural ensemble of an irregular quadrilateral plan, surrounded by wide walls made of limestone and brick. There are 10 artillery bastions at the corners with 11 towers and 6 gates.  

  • See the Noul Neamț Monastery. 

  • Go to the nearby Bell Tower in Chitcani village for better views of the monastery. 

  • Get some local souvenirs for friends and family back home.

  • End the day with some memorable photographs at iconic places here. 

  • 110 EUR Per Adult
  • Car and gasoline.

  • English speaking local (Moldovan) tour guide.

  • Border formalities.

  • Entrance fee at the fortress of Bender. 

  • Food, drinks, and souvenirs. 

  • Tourists travelling to Tiraspol are required to have passports with them as there is a check-point at Bender. 

  • Since Transnistria is an unrecognized state, your passport will not get stamped. However, officials will issue a registration slip at the border. Usually, tourists are allowed to keep this slip once the tour is done.

  • In case you want to book a wine tasting session at Mimi Winery, please, let me know in advance because there is an additional charge involved.  Large size groups are invited to book this tour. I can provide comfortable minivans.   A visit to Mimi is optional and can be organized upon request as it involves a pre-booking.
