  • I was lucky enough to visit the Museum inside the fortress. Spectacular ... There are ancient artifacts in gold and silver, musical instruments and clothing to crafting ... Following the visit went in the inner Park where climbing up stairs, leads to a path along the walls where you can admire the city of Derbent from above going to embrace the Caspian ... pay attention that the path along the walls and without parapets. not suitable for small children and people suffering from Vertigo. Inside the Park you can enjoy a sauna of the time used by the emperor. All along the outer wall there are holes caused by artillery fire of the famous Genghis Khan who tried to invade the fortress

  • The city of Derbent was once the most northerly settlement of Azerbaijanis (still dominate here, Azeris) and this citadel is located in the city's fortress and is, in my opinion, the most interesting places of the city. It is located on a hill and because it offers a panoramic view of the whole city of Derbent. In addition, being on the road (were on wooing-very friendly people), the hosts organized an excursion for us in the fortress, along with the elderly and a professional guide. Here is still an atmosphere of ancient culture and everyday life. Because our tour was very informative and interesting. Being in Derbent this place be sure to visit.
