Discovering an ancient city: Nakhchivan (Azerbaijan) Travel Guide

posted in: Travel | 1

As you know, I posted my Nakhchivan Travel Vlog a few days ago and today I want to share some of our pictures with you along with some tips and recommendations from our personal experience.

I have been living in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, for the last five months. Now that spring has arrived and the weather is warmer, I am starting to experience this country, which is very beautiful and captivating.

The first place I traveled to is Nakhchivan, a landlocked enclave of the Republic of Azerbaijan. This territory is bordering Armenia to the east and north, Iran to the south and west and Turkey to the northwest.

(In this picture you can see Nakhchivan. Iran is on the other side of the water).

The best way to get to Nakhchivan is to fly from Baku. Azerbaijan Airlines provides 3-6 scheduled flights every day from the capital.

Nakhchivan has a lot of ancient cultural monuments, such as the Momine Khatun Mausoleum that was constructed in the XII century and represents the architectural tradition of the medieval era of the region.

IMG_3287_1 (Custom)

Behind the monument you can see the Kahn Palace, built in 1747. At the present time, it serves as a museum with more than 900 exhibits in eight presentation halls in the museum.

Nakhchivangala is a fortress that is also very rich in archeological materials, especially the pottery fragments and stone maces. Nowadays, it is a historical and architectural museum complex.

There is an underground mine shaft that served as a shelter. A hall was opened in the upper part for ventilation and lighting. There is also a well inside the cave. The fortress was mostly destroyed, but the remaining parts attract attention for its uniqueness.

IMG_3357_1 (Custom)

The Alinja Fortress is an unusual and magnificent place located on the top of a mountain top, near the town of Julfa. It dated back to the 6th-8th centuries. However, the fortress was destroyed and rebuilt several times.

IMG_3463_1 (Custom)

Inside the walls, on the lower slopes of the mountains there are springs and water tanks.

IMG_3473_1 (Custom)

The highest top is the Gapichig mountain.

(Beautiful landscape and rainbow)

We stayed at the Duzdag Hotel that is located in an isolated area, 10 km from Nakhichevan. It offers a sauna, a Turkish bath, a tennis court, an indoor and outdoor pool, game tables and a gym.

It also features a physiotherapy clinic, located a five minute drive away, with various treatments and special salt caves for patients with respiratory diseases such as asthma.

IMG_3522_1 (Custom)

We also went to the mountains and enjoyed the snow. The landscape was breathtaking.

IMG_3557_1 (Custom)

One of the things that called my attention was this door. It has two bells: the one on the right is for men and the one of the left is for women. If a man knocks at the door, another man will open and if a woman knocks with the feminine side, a female will attend her.

IMG_3584_1 (Custom)

The last thing we did was a tour to the spectacular Ashab-e-Kahf. This is a sanctuary in a natural cave, between Ilandagh and Nahajir mountains, a 12 km distance from Nakhchivan city. It means “Cave masters” in Arabic. Currently pilgrims, tourists and guests from other regions of Azerbaijan and from foreign countries visit here regularly.
