Tour to Sheki – Ancient Khanate



Sheki is a historical city in Azerbaijan. It is located in the southern foothills of the Greater Caucasus, 300 kilometers northwest of Baku.
Sheki is a neat well-groomed town with recognizable architecture, roofs of houses lined with red tiles - looks more like a typical European provincial town than an eastern city.
Sheki residents are very hospitable and cheerful people by nature, and local humor has long been a hallmark of these lands. The city is even twinned with the famous Bulgarian Gabrovo. And in 1983, for the first time in Sheki, the "Festival of Laughter" was held.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the city can be considered one of the oldest settlements in the Caucasus; many finds on its territory are over 2,500 years old.
The city has preserved many historical and architectural sights, a special place among which is occupied by the majestic palace of the Sheki Khans, built in the 18th century without a single nail with luxurious wall paintings and openwork windows, in a stone citadel. Also of interest are the Albanian temple in the village of Kish, the fortress of Gelersen-Gorersen (VIII-IX centuries), numerous caravanserais, the house of the Shekikhanovs, the Juma mosque (XVIII century), the minaret of the Gileylinskaya mosque (XVIII century), medieval baths.
Sheki is a large craft center. Here you can buy jewelry and engraved products of local craftsmen. Sheki has its own theater, historical museum, house-museum of Azerbaijani writer and philosopher M.F.Akhundov.
