Lada Niva clubs & forums around the World



Because of the ability to use Nivas for trips, events, trials, etc - not to mention the need for aftermarket support groups - there is a astonishing number of Niva clubs and forums around the world. In addition to the obvious Russian/Slavonic speaking groups, there are many others (on-line translators at bottom of page).

Is your Niva club or forum missing? Please e-mail me and I'll add it (see below).

On-line translators:
Cut and paste the URL into either PROMT, BabelFish or Translation Guide dot com (includes most languages Niva info is in).
UPDATE : Google Language Tools now also seems to cover all necessary languages.

Don't know what language a site is?
Try this language identifer.

Translator tips:
Niva often translates as "field" or "cornfield" from Russian.
"W-Niva" translated from Russian refers to the Chevolet Niva.
If you start reading about Hippopotamus' & Crocodiles, a Hippo is Russian slang for the 3-door Niva, and Croc for the 5-door.
Avoid talking about the "driver's side" or "passenger's side" and stick to the "right side" and "left side" to avoid confusion between those of us who drive on different sides of the road.
