The City of Poets and Former Ancient Capital of the Country

Azerbaijan's former capital surrounded by fine countryside and packed with cultural heritage, Shamakhi is one of Azerbaijan’s most historic cities and the birthplace of legendary Azerbaijani poets Sabir and Nesimi.
Venture out of the city with trips to Siyazan (Chirag Gala Fortress & Beshbarmag Mountain), Candy Cane Mountains (in Khizi) and Diri Baba Mausoleum (in Gobustan). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Juma Mosque, examine the collection at Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory, learn about winemaking at Meyseri Wines, and delve into the distant past at Yeddi Gumbaz Mausoleum.
