Sheki

One of the most ancient cities of Azerbaijan and a loveliest town with tiled - roof old houses and Khan’s Palace, Sheki is called the architectural reserve of the country. It lies in the rolling, thickly forested foothills, which spread out to the south, while to the immediate north are the dramatic, snow - capped peaks of the Greater Caucasus.

Rich in Islamic architecture, Silk Road history, good food, and friendly people, this is travel and leisure in the Caucasus at its finest.
