Overview

Azerbaijan Travel International is pleased to present our guests Shamakhi-Gabala tour.

Baku-Gabala tour is a journey in which cities, regions, capitals, climatic zones and parts of the world change. After spending a day on this way, you get acquainted with the main feature of the nature of Azerbaijan – its rich diversity. And in addition to being close to nature, you get closer to the culture and history of Azerbaijan, as the road passes in the lands that have a wonderful past.

And the details are in the journey itself. What a miracle happened a thousand years ago in Qobustan, what is special about the technology of the ancient Shamakhi mosque, what Gabala looks like from a bird's-eye view, what is special about the taste of Sheki halva and much, much more will be learned by anyone who will make himself (and loved ones) a pleasant gift by purchasing the Baku-Gabala tour.
