Famous as the birthplace of legendary poet Nizami, Ganja is a truly ancient city still bearing traces of the myriad kingdoms and empires that ruled over it in the past.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ganja: Sheki (Sheki Fortress, Sheki Khans' Palace, &more). Spend the 2nd (Sun) exploring at Lake Goygol. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Maralgol, admire the striking features of The Alexander Nevsky Church, walk around Khan's Garden, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. John's Church.

To see ratings, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Ganja vacation builder.

Istanbul, Turkey to Ganja is an approximately 18.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Istanbul to Ganja. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Istanbul in August: highs in Ganja hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can travel to Baku.

Baku
A truly contemporary city criss-crossed by history, Baku offers everything from the modern elegance of the Flame Towers to the medieval UNESCO-listed Old City at its core.
Change things up with these side-trips from Baku: Gobustan (Gobustan State Reserve & Mud Volcanoes). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, see the interesting displays at Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum, don't miss a visit to Fountain Square, and take in panoramic vistas at Flame Towers.
