"Crossing from Georgia to Azerbaijan at Krasny Most" Georgia Transportation Tip by socheid

Georgia Transportation: 38 reviews and 32 photos

Krasny Most (meaning "Red Bridge") connects Azerbaijan and Georgia. It is an arch bridge dating back to the 12th century crossing the Khrami River. The historic bridge has been replaced in 1998 as the main crossing by the TRACECA (Europe-Caucasus-Asia) bridge.

If you are travelling in the opposite direction there is of course the return journey available on the mini bus. In the afternoon at least this is scheduled to depart on the hour. There are cab drivers hanging around looking for people coming through on foot and will spin tales about there being a problem with the mini bus and that the only way to progress is by taxi. This is of course complete lies I can guarantee since after having being told of the mini bus problem by such a cab driver I was merrilly on my way in a mini bus to Tbilisi 5 minutes later without fuss.

Please note that if you are from a nation requiring an Azeri visa you cannot obtain this at the border. The only place where you can enter Azerbaijan and obtain a visa on the spot (see the Azeri embassy website for details on requirements) is Baku airport.
