Lying in the rolling, densely forested slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains is the lovely small city of Shaki, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Offering a stark contrast from Baku’s ever-evolving skyline, Shaki is an excellent blend of Silk Road history, intricate Islamic architecture, panoramic snow-capped peaks and pristine countryside where time truly stood still.


A visit to the Shekhi Khann Palace is a must. The 18th century palace was constructed as a summer residence of Hussein-khan Mushtad. The façade of the palace is richly painted with anecdotal drawings with intricate geometrical patterns and multi-colored glass window mosaics.

From Baku to Sheki, drive through the ancient Silk Road path over scenic mountain roads. Pass through Diri Baba Mausoleum, uniquely carved on a grotto closely adjoined into a cliff. Continue to Shemakha, the former capital of Shirvan Khanate, with its two icons: the imposing Djuma Mosque (Friday Mosque) and the royal mausoleum of Yeddi Gumbaz.
