One-day tour covering the Orthodox shrines of Tiraspol and Bender, closely related to the history of the Russian Empire.

We suggest starting the tour from the Transfiguration Cathedral located in the center of Bender. Further, the Alexander Nevsky Church, erected in 1833, is the only active military temple in Pridnestrovie and one of the oldest religious buildings in Bender. Visit the Bendery Fortress – a symbol of the victory of the Russian Empire in the Russian-Turkish war. After Bender entered the Russian Empire, the fortress served as a stronghold for the Russian army. Be sure to visit the temple-chapel in honor of the Image of the Spas Nerukotvornyi , located on the territory of the Military Historical Memorial Complex in Bender. The complex was erected on the site of an old military cemetery, where the remains of many soldiers of the Russian Imperial Army who died in the wars of the 18-20th centuries were buried.

In Tiraspol, visit the Church of St. Andrei Pervozvannyi, built in 1997 on the territory of the military town of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in Pridnestrovie. Not far from this place was the Trinity Church of the 56th Zhytomyr Infantry Regiment, destroyed in the 1930s. Further, the route leads to the Kirov Park and the Svyato-Vvedensky Pakhomiev Convent. Once upon a time, this place was the Cathedral cemetery, where the soldiers of the 8th Astrakhan Dragoon and 56th Zhitomir infantry regiments stationed in Tiraspol, as well as parishioners of the Nikolsky Cathedral were buried.
