  • The Palace is situated not far from Baku, but worth the time to visit there. Stained glass Windows, this is something ... Yes, and painted inside is impressive, it is a pity that you cannot take pictures

  • Many arriving in Azerbaijan are limited to a visit to Baku and think they saw this country, this is a mistake. You're only 15%. Visit Sheki, Azerbaijan after passing through Switzerland-Gabala-and you will see another Azerbaijan, with its ancient history. SHAKI to be not only the Palace of Sheki Khan, but also ancient Albanian Church in the village Nij.
