Overview

Snoozing amid green pillows of beautifully forested mountains, Şəki (Sheki) is Azerbai­jan’s loveliest town, dappled with tiled-roof old houses and topped off with a glittering little khan’s palace. Historic Sheki was originally higher up the valley around the site now occupied by Kish. That town was ruined by floods in 1716 but rebuilt by rebellious Khan Haci Çhalabi, who set up a defiantly independent khanate there in the 1740s. by a second, even more catastrophic flood in 1772, Nukha became the new royal capital. After 1805, when the khanate was ceded to Russia, Nukha continued to flourish as a silk-weaving town and was a trading junc­tion between caravan routes to Baku, Tbilisi and Derbent (Dagestan), with five working caravanserais at its peak. Nukha was re­named Şhaki in the 1960s. He built a second fortress at Nukha (today’s Shaki). When the original Shaki was obliterated.

    Places to see in SHEKI TOUR:

    – Stop-by in Gabala

    – Waterfal Yeddi Gozel: (Seven Beauties)

    – Palace of Sheki Khans: This ornate 1762 palace build­ing features vivid murals and dazzling coloured light streaming through Shabaka(stained-glass) windows making it Sheki’s foremost ‘sight’ and one of the South Cauca­sus’ most iconic buildings
    -Lunch at Traditional Restaurant: Tasting Sheki’s most famous food “Piti”

    – Karavansaray – Swift development of trade in the Middle Ages enhanced importance of caravanserai existing in the territory of Azerbaijan at that time and favored construction of new ones.

    – Overnight at Karvansaray Hotel

    – Kish Albanian Church– The brilliantly renovated round-towered Albanian church in pretty Kiş village has been lovingly converted into a very well-presented trilingual museum. It’s the best place anywhere to learn about mysterious Caucasian Albania, the Chris­tian nation that once covered most of north­ern Azerbaijan. In fact, the church site goes back well beyond the Christian era, and glass-covered grave excavations allow visi­tors to peer down on the bones of possibly Bronze Age skeletons.

    – House of Hand Craft

    – Lunch at Shamakhi City
