There are no M-roads in Georgia by the way.

There are M-roads in Georgia. The thing is that they changed the name to S-roads for the Georgian translation of Magistrale...

S probably means Sakartvelo = the Georgian name for the country. The numbering is different from the USSR M-numbering as well.

I know. Azerbaijan changed their numbering, so did armenia, but the structure is the same. In Georgia it is also the same. They have the S Roads and the Sh Roads.
S roads stand for the საერთაშორისო მნიშვნელობის გზა (Saertaschorisso mnischwnelobis gsa ) meaning Road of International Importance and Sh roads stand for შიდასახელმწიფოებრივი მნიშვნელობის გზა (Schidasachelmzipoebriwi mnischwnelobis gsa) meaning Roads of national significance.
So it has the same structure as Armenia's M- and H- and Azerbaijan's M- and R- Roads.

I found this cool video of the Georgian Military Road, connecting Russia with Georgia. The scenery is quite spectacular, but the road is in a rather bad shape. I hope to travel this road from Tbilisi up to the Russian border somewhere in May (if the road is not closed due to snow...?).

Why is there a European Union flag at the border?

Great video! The mountain sceneries are even better in reality... The really bad part of the road constitutes about 15% of the length, a lot more in time. I did this road from Tbilisi to Stepantsminda (ca 10 km from the Russian border) last summer. May should be fine, the passes are not really that high. Just in case you didn't know the border is closed to foreigners.

Yeah, I know. I don't have the intention to enter Russia, just want to enjoy the beautiful scenery. :-)

You're welcome, but the video is not mine. I found it on YouTube while searching videos of the Georgian military road. Always good to find such nice road reports from other, beautiful parts of the world that have less coverage here.

Maybe you can help me with this question, but what exactly is a military road? Obviously there is a lot of civilian traffic, so it is not exclusively for the army.

Is a military road a strategic road of the army? Or is it a road built by the army? What is the reason why they call it a military road instead of a motorway etc.?

Thanks in advance!

There is little chance that this road is closed due to snow in May
