Gusar is a peaceful old city, sometimes referred to as the “northern gates” of Azerbaijan due to its proximity to the Dagestani border. Highlights of the town itself include a few colourful old cottages reminiscent of a time when Gusar was home to a Russian military regiment during the Russian Empire period, and Nariman Narimanov Park, one of the oldest parks in the country. There you’ll find pleasant alleys to stroll along in the shade of giant trees, together with a teahouse and series of white Soviet-era statues. At the Lermontov House Museum, you can learn about the legendary Russian poet’s visit to Gusar in 1837, and at the local history museum you can explore a collection of around 3,000 items from between the Bronze and Middle ages.
