Direction : Baku-Shamakhi-Ismayilli-Gabala-Sheki

Duration : 12 Hours

Tour description
According to the Azerbaijani historians, the name of the town goes back to the ethnonym of the Sakas, who reached the territory of modern-day Azerbaijan in the 7th century BC and populated it for several centuries. It goes back to a time, when it was a market centre on the Silk Road, linking Dagestan, Russia to the northern trade routes through the Caucasus. Many public places and private houses in Shaki are decorated with shabaka, a wooden lattice of pieces of coloured glass, held together without glue or a single nail. The technique is complex and known only to a few artisans who pass their meticulous craft from generation to generation. The Palace of Shaki Khans which was a summer residence of Shaki Khans still remains one of the most visible landmarks of Shaki. Constructed in 1762 without a single nail is one of the most marvellous monuments of its epoch. Historic Centre of Sheki with the Khan's Palace was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List in July 2019.
