  • Sheki is quite small township and the best things to do there is to get close with the nature and national cuisine. But this Palace is quite authentic place and kept the atmosphere of old Sheki. 
  • We were impressed by the Palace. So who visited Sheki and should visit Khan BB´s Palace. Not so interesting, we found the tour with a guide on Azeri (although we know the language). Overall, it is worth visiting; but only the main Palace. The small museums drum around are only money rip-off.

  • This is a really beautiful palaces. Beautiful wall paintings and stained-glass Windows and take pictures sorry. It was explained that there was a room that had been directing and fireplace in the past to guide people, will be paired with a ceiling mural, as reflected in the mirror, but all lost to the country. This is the Palace can feel the ups and downs of this district was surrounded by the powerhouse.
