    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Diri Baba Mausoleum, Qobustan Azerbaijan

    The architecture of this mausoleum harmonically fits into the picturesque surroundings of the building – view against the background of rocks and greenery of trees. The building of the mausoleum is a masterpiece of the architectural school of Shirvan. It is considered one of the creations of the arts of ancient masters. The monument is protected by the government.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Sheki Khan's Palace, Sheki 0055 Azerbaijan

    This ornate 1762 palace build­ing features vivid murals and dazzling colored light streaming through Shabaka(stained-glass) windows making it Sheki’s foremost ‘sight’ and one of the South Cauca­sus’ most iconic buildings. It was originally the Sheki Khan’s administrative building, just one of around 40 now-lost royal structures within the fortress compound. 

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Sheki Karvansaray, Mirza Fatali Akhundzada 185, Sheki 5500 Azerbaijan

     Swift development of trade in the Middle Ages enhanced the importance of caravanserai existing in the territory of Azerbaijan at that time and favored construction of new ones. Generally, caravanserai was a built-in form of castles with one gate, closing of which made them impregnable during dangerous incidents. “Caravanserai” historical complex in Sheki is two magnificent caravanserais which reached present days and traditionally named “Yukhary” and “Ashaghy” caravanserai, which means “Upper” and “Lower” Caravanserai in translation from Azerbaijani into English. The construction of these caravanserais is dated back to the 18th-19th centuries.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Church of Kish, Sheki Azerbaijan

    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.

    Duration: 1 hour
