Ganja

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.
Spend the 15th (Wed) exploring at Lake Goygol. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Maralgol lake, don't miss a visit to Nizami Ganjavi Mausoleum, pause for some serene contemplation at St. John's Church, and walk around Heydar Aliyev Park.

To see reviews, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Ganja road trip website.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Ganja is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Jeddah to Ganja. Traveling from Jeddah in July, things will get little chillier in Ganja: highs are around 38°C and lows about 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can drive to Sheki.
