Shamakhi

(35 reviews from 3 attractions)
Historic Sites Museums
For centuries one of northern Azerbaijan's most prominent trading and cultural centers, Shamakhi provided the setting for many important events throughout its 2,000 years of history. A holiday in Shamakhi takes you to a relatively small city (pop. 31,000) that serves as the region's administrative and economic capital. Once a key town on the legendary Silk Road, today the city remains off the radar for most tourists. Those who make a trip to Shamakhi are rewarded with a chance to discover centuries of history and two major landmarks, a 10th-century mosque and the ruins of a medieval fortress, originally constructed in the 8th century for the local shahs. Find what you're looking for from your Shamakhi holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Azerbaijan trip generator.

Where to stay in Shamakhi

Shamakhi remains a minor tourist destination, so don't expect an abundance of accommodations. Most budget travelers stay at the motel on the main road to Baku, where a full restaurant serves moderately priced specialties. You'll also find one 5-star hotel in town, which features a spa center and free Wi-Fi but does not offer accommodations for unmarried local couples.
