The Soviet Military Van

Our «CrazyBu» van is an original and authentic Russian military UAZ-452 van, built in 2010. Initially, this vehicle was designed in 1950s as a support vehicle for military forces. Now it‘s still being produced, just as it was sixty years ago… And, surprisingly, it looks almost like it did in 1965!

The UAZ-452 looks very similar to a VW transporter, but there is also huge difference: VW was designed in Germany, the country of perfect and numerous paved highways. Our «CrazyBu» van was designed to survive in Russian countryside. It is a Land Cruiser 40 at the back of its mind – sturdy axles, a heavy frame, stout under drive and robustness in every way. Do you really need to build highways if you produce such vans?

Combined with four-wheel drive, it was born to endure any off-road condition! Nine men can be comfortably seated inside this van – and nine men can push it out of any mire! Unfortunately, the design engineer considerably upgraded the engine: now it cannot use any liquid as a fuel except Au-92 :)

Who is behind "Travel Real Russia"?

Hello! My name is Tony Terentev, I'm the owner of the «Travel Real Russia» company! If you want one of the driving tours, I would definitely be your guide!

Actually, I am a licensed physician and doctor with 6 years’ of experience. Nevertheless, one day I decided to change my way of life and start doing what I really want to do – travelling, meeting new people and broadening my view and horizons!

I know a lot about bustling Moscow, its secret places and their stories. Even more I know about Russian countryside, where epochal monuments neighbor with abandoned churches and desolated villages showing you severe traces of 20th century.

Do you want to explore one of the most complex, confounding and contradictory countries?  You came to the right place. I created the Modern and Upbeat Travel Agency to replace the paradigm of package tours as the best "value for money". Make the most of your Russian holidays and...
