You'll start the tour being picked up from your hotel in Chisinau and depart to Tiraspol - the capital of the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldovan Republic. The town was founded thanks to the Peace Treaty of Jassy, which was concluded after the Russian-Turkish War (1787-1791 gg.) between Turkey and Russia. According to this Treaty, Turkey ceded Russia the region of Ochakov that included the land between the rivers Dniester and Southern Bug. Empress Ecatherine II, wishing to strengthen the border on the left bank of the Dniester, entrusts the governor V.Kahovsky to "overlook the land between the Bug and the Dniester" and prepare proposals for its administrative and territorial structure. About his calculations, V.Kahovsky reported to St. Petersburg: “This new created fortress would be a means to attract new residents to the city, and the city where will opened trading days and trade fairs will be beneficial to the fortress”.

After the sightseeing tour, and delicious lunch (optional), you'll depart to the Novo-Neamt Holy Ascension Monastery that is located in the village of Kitskany, 15km from the Bendery city.  Everything had changed when in 1859 Prince Alexander Cuza Voda had issued a decree on the secularization of monastic lands.In 1538, the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent conquered the town, and renamed it Bender. Its fortifications were developed into a full fortress under the same name under the supervision of the Turkish architect Koji Mimar Sinan. The Ottomans used it to keep the pressure on Moldavia, between localities and Varna and Bender of Republic of Moldova. 

The extent of this tour will be about 6-hours, going about 170km round-trip.
