    Itinerary

    Day 1: Baku- Shaki

    Stop At: Sheki Khan's Palace, Sheki 0055 Azerbaijan
    The Khan’s Palace in Sheki is a historical and architectural monument of world importance. The palace built in the 18th century is located in the north-eastern part of the city, surrounded by fortress walls. A two-storeyed building with a length of thirty meters covers an area of 300 square meters. The palace consists of six rooms, four corridors and two mirror balconies. The palace also featuring the folk residential building is considered not only one of the finest examples of the 18th century palace architecture in the Caucasus, but also as an architectural monument of the Muslim East. Together with the city's historic center, the palace covers an area of 120 hectares.

    Today Sheki Khan’s Palace has become a must-visit place for tourists visiting our country.

    As a result of strenuous efforts of our state Sheki Khan’s Palace was granted “enhanced protection” status and inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in Need of Urgent Safeguarding on October 24, 2001.

    At the 43rd session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee held in Baku Convention Center on July 7, 2019, “The historic center of Sheki together with the Khan’s Palace” was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

    Day 2: Shaki

    Stop At: Church of Kish, Sheki Azerbaijan
    In 2000-2003 the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs funded a joint project between Azerbaijan Architecture and Construction University and the Norwegian Humanitarian Enterprise for the archaeological research and restoration of the church of Kish. Dr. Vilayat Karimov of Baku's Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography served as the director of excavations, and the archaeological advisor for the project was J. Bjornar Storfjell. Radiocarbon analysis of various objects found on the site showed that the cultic site found beneath the altar of the church dates to about 3000 B.C., while the construction of the existing church building dates to about the 12th century (990-1160 A.D.).

    The existing church building cannot be dated to the times of St. Elishe, but the archaeological evidence demonstrates that the church is located on an ancient cultic site. It is very unlikely that St. Elishe built in Kish a church in the modern understanding of this word. Even if the person did exist, it appears likely that he built only the altar or used an existing pagan cult structure.

    Bjornar Storfjell stated that there's clear evidence that this church was built as Diophysite church. Excavations revealed that the church represented two different periods of use, with two different corresponding floor levels. According to Storfjell, since the architecture of the apse of the original church in Kish suggests a diophysite Christology, and since the Georgian Church was the only diophysite church existing in the Caucasus in the late medieval period, it seems reasonable to suggest that the Kish church was built as a Georgian church and was later taken over by monophysites.
