I'm going to be in Odessa this August (with my own car) and plan to drive to Chisinau on my way back to Belgrade. I was thinking of doing a day-trip to Tiraspol --- here are my questions:
It looks like taking the marshukta / train to Tiraspol is pretty painless these days but what about driving in with your own car from the Moldovan side - bad idea?
Instead of doing a Tiraspol day-trip from Chisinau, I was thinking of taking the direct route when I go from Odessa…
Does anyone know aprox. price and distance for a taxi from the airport directly to Tiraspol? In comparison (if there is one), the price and time for a direct bus.
On Sunday 27th March 2016, I decided to go on a day trip to Tiraspol from Chisinau via public minibus. When we got to the Transnistrian border control, the border guard got on the bus, had a cursory glance in our bags and didn't check anyone's passport.
I then had a lovely few hours in Transnistria visiting a museum, taking pictures and having lunch before getting the minibus back again.
This time, when the bus stopped at the Transnistrian border control, passports were checked. I think it was…
I will be touring Romania in August and would like to finish off by going to Odessa via Iasi - Chisinau - Tiraspol.
I am not thinking of staying very long in either Chisinau or Tiraspol, maybe just a few hours in each, then a week in Odessa.
I already found out that the Romanian rental agencies won't let me take my rented car into Transnistria and Ukraine, so it will have to be bus or train.
However my question is:
a) is it safe to travel through Transnistria and the Odessa Oblast?
I will be spending a lot of time in Balti this spring and summer. Would be possible to open a local bank account, or a post office account?
Thank you for your help
After having visited over 60 countries, it's about time to visit Moldova. Anyone visiting Moldova in the period 16 March till 29 March? I would like to do some (serious) hiking in Moldova, but would be better to do that with someone else.
Normally I travel with my girlfriend, but she has to study this time...
I will be flying into Chisinau and was looking for some suggestions for a 2-3 day itinerary.
As there is no LP guide for this country, I am a bit stuck.
Can anyone recommend some good trip and what hostels are also nice.
I will be arriving on a Saturday and will leave about Tuesday for Romania.
Some travel info for Moldova as there does not seem to be much out there

We are a group of visitors from Turkey planning to spend less than 24 hours here on the way through to the Ukraine next week (start of February). Considering the protests in the Chisinau at the moment, does anyone have any idea if this will have a negative affect on a group like us travelling into/through Transnistria?
