Overview
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. Full day tour takes eight hours default, though Transnistria deserves at least a week. It is not Stalinism, we are very volatile where to go and what to do, but default route covers must-see USSR era and modern bits of Tiraspol, Bendery and optionallly Kitskany, and my favorite nooks and crannies that I discovered doing my sketches. The trip wont be exhausting, not boring at all, we will have time to talk about all peculiarities of past and present of Transnistria, you won’t be meeting a guide, you will be meeting a friend!

Very often when we think of travelling, we think of beautiful old towns, museums, Instagram-worthy mosques, cathedrals, temples etc. But isn’t it more meaningful to be able to visit the ordinary but beautiful everyday places? Anton’s virtual tour brings us around his hometown of

The pace of the stream is relaxed, like a walking tour, and you can ask questions throughout. You even get to access abandoned places that wouldn't be possible as a group of tourists - like Chernobyl without the crowds, quite a surreal experience. For those looking for some

Really enjoyed this virtual tour! The footage was really good, and Anton's commentary was even better! This is a really great tour for you if you like to hear personal stories about a place that not many people have visited. Enjoyed the local jokes at the end as well!

I joined Anton for one of its virtual tour around Transnistria. It is definitely not a usual tourist tour - it is so much more. You will see Tiraspol and Bender through eyes and thoughts of Anton. He makes you feel as if you would walk through the cities right next to him. Not
