The excursion will start with Tiraspol city tour - 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) between the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire.
According to this Treaty, Ottoman Empire ceded to Russian Empire the region of Ochakov that included the land between the rivers Dniester and Southern Bug.

The town was first mentioned as an important customs post in a commerce grant issued by the Moldavian voivode Alexander the Good to the merchants of Lviv (Ukraine) on October 8, 1408. The name "Tighina" is found in documents from the second half of the 15th century.
