Azerbaijan's True Historical Gem

Sheki is Azerbaijan’s true travel gem, a small city off the forested slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains rich in Silk Road history and renowned for its fascinating architecture, food, and friendly residents.
Church of Kish and Zagatala Fortress will appeal to history buffs. Discover out-of-the-way places like Sheki Khans' Palace and Gabala Shooting Club. Venture out of the city with trips to Tufandag Winter Summer Resort (in Gabala) and Zagatala City Mosque (in Zagatala). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Sheki Fortress, admire the landmark architecture of Winter Palace, and steep yourself in history at Sheki Karvansaray.
