Тour "Sunny Моldova"
The tour of the duration of 5 days will reveal the secrets of Moldova from different banks of the Dniester and practically will acquaint you with two epochs, a very close history, but nevertheless different cultures:
On the first day, we will pick you up at the airport or train station and then we will go on an excursion to the Milestii Mici cellars. The Milestii Mici galleries are more than 200 km long and are listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest collection of wines in Europe. You will walk along the streets of wine cellars: Cabernet, Aligote, Feteasca, etc. After such an exciting tour of the "wine" streets, we will occupy you in the hotel and offer you a walk now along the streets of Chisinau, with a visit to the wine bars and restaurants in the national style.

After breakfast at the hotel, we will go to the side of Transnistria. There's an atmosphere, with which we will get acquainted gradually. We will visit the largest Bender fortress in Moldova in the city of Tighina (Bendery), built in 15-16 centuries by Moldovan princes and rebuilt later by the Turks on the orders of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Cross the Dniester and find ourselves on its right bank in the capital of the unrecognized Transnistrian republic - the city of Tiraspol, founded in the late 18th century by General Suvorov. Today, almost 30 years after the collapse of the USSR, Soviet symbols, monuments to Lenin and other attributes of the past can still be seen in the city. If possible, visit the world-famous wine-divin factory KVINT (Quint) and taste the divines (skates). After that we will have a lunch at the Kumanyok restaurant. At the end of the program, we will visit the Holy Ascension Novo-Nyametsky Monastery in the village of Chitcani, built by students of St. Paisius Velichkovsky at the end of the 18th century. After that we will return to Chisinau and take a walk around the city.
