Visit Red Village (Girmizi Gesebe in Azerbaijani) in Guba and discover the last fully Mountain Jewish settlement in the world. One of many ethnic minorities in Azerbaijan, the Mountain Jews are thought to have lived here for thousands of years. However, they settled in Red Village in the 1730s and it has remained an island of Mountain Jewish culture ever since, with its own traditions, language and even some unique dishes. And now visitors can explore this rich heritage at a brand-new Museum of Mountain Jews, housed in a lovingly restored 19th-century synagogue. Equipped with the very latest in museum technology, the museum unravels the story of this little-known people.
