How to get from the airport to Adygea
On arrival at the airport you will have to overcome another 160 kilometers to Kamennomostskiy, and further to other tourist destinations of the Republic. To do this route by public transport is not so easy, and will have to do some transplants. First you need to get to the city centre by taxi or city bus or trolleybus (№7, №53 – to the railway station Krasnodar; No. 15 – from the railway and bus station) and then take long distance bus to Maykop (runs from 06:00 to 20:00 approximately every hour, 3 hours, cost from 240 rubles), or by Bus (departs at 06:50, 16:25, in way more than 4 hours).
If numerous transplant and travel in a stuffy transport is not your Forte, in this case, it is best to take a taxi or book a travel transfer from the airport to your destination/hotel. The trip will cost much more expensive than travelling by bus, but you will save time. In addition, there is the opportunity to save if you are travelling in a group.
Unfortunately, railway station hadzhoh Kamennomostsky in as a passenger in 2015 is no longer functioning, do not even go train. So on the train to the tourist spots of Adygea can only be reached with a transfer from train to bus in Belorechensk, Belorechensk in the Krasnodar region, or via Krasnodar. Then have to get on the buses.
It seems that the easiest way to go to come by train to Maikop and from there change the bus to Bus and other places, but to the railway station of Maykop three times a day go trains from Tuapse and Adler in the Krasnodar region, and no distant trains. So actually reachable by train from other regions better through the holidays or even Krasnodar.
If you arrive at the railway station of Maykop on the train from Tuapse and Adler, you will first need to take a taxi or public transport to the suburban bus station at Gogol str., 47A, where to catch the bus to Kamennomostskiy.

The bus is not the best way to get to the resort towns of Adygea, but if your on a budget then this is the only option to get inexpensive. I have to change at least in Maykop, and in some cases to Maykop from your region/city will have to go instead.

Given the inaccessibility by public transport tourist places Adygea, ideal to visit the Republic will be personal vehicles. From Maykop to Kamennomostskiy side Guzeripl through, Dukhovskoy and Khamyshki leads only one direction, ending in Guzeripl. Further Guzeripl to drive a car is impossible, as it is surrounded by the mountains of the Caucasian nature reserve. It is a good road that in 2018 a major overhaul, and it continues in 2019. To all attractions and to the checkpoint in the Caucasus reserve also is an asphalt road, and although it come across difficult sections, switchbacks, and potholes, and overall you can drive any car.
