Sheki is located 675 m above sea level in the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus about 370 km away from Baku. The region around the city is a real natural wonder with beautiful landscapes, mineral water springs, forests and rivers. The majestic Palace of Sheki Khans is considered as one of the most beautiful architectural monuments of medieval Azerbaijan.



Sheki is Azerbaijan’s true travel gem – a small city off the forested slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains rich in Silk Road history and renowned for its fascinating architecture, food and friendly residents.

Once an important stop on the legendary Silk Road, this charming city in the north-west of Azerbaijan is one of our true travel gems.
  • The most anticipated outing of the day is the Sheki Khans Palace, the 18th-century summer administrative palace. The interior decoration of the palace was done by local craftsmen and reflects the best traditions of Azerbaijani architecture. Considered the most beautiful architectural monument of medieval Azerbaijan, the Palace of Sheki Khans is genuinely unique. Thousands of pieces of small glass make up its colorful mosaic. Not a single nail or glue was used to bind them together.
  • Next, to the ornamentally miraculous palace, there is a Shebeke Workshop of craftsmen who make this work of art live and this is where subtle ornamental patterns appear. Shebeke is a field of decorative applied arts requiring great skill. The basement of patterns consists of geometrical ornaments, mostly circular, multi-angular, and star-shaped forms. After enjoying the great art of Shebeke we will head to Upper
  • Caravanserai, one of the two surviving old hotels in Sheki from the 18th century. The inside is very comfortable and is intended to favor the conclusion of significant deals. The Upper Caravansary is used as a hotel now. The dome over its entrance is one of the biggest in the Near East. All merchandise was stored in the cellar, and the shop proper would be on the first floor while the living premises were on the second.
  • Visit Kish Church, one of the Caucasian Albania monuments. Attributed to the 1st-5th centuries, the temple in the Kish village was one of the first churches in the Caucasus.
