Overview

Sheki situated on the legendary Silk Road, this charming city in the northwest of Azerbaijan is well worth a visit for its unique architecture, ancient handicrafts and the fun humour of the local people. One of Sheki’s top spots is the Palace of Sheki Khan, a display of lavish decorations including ‘shebeke’ - the local art of building mosaics from coloured glass, set in a wooden latticework and assembled without nails or glue. Local guides can bring both this architectural monument and the khanate period to life with their expert commentaries.
