This route will lead us to the north, to city Quba – former capital of Quba’s Kingdom. Located 156 km at north from Baku, Quba was in a heart of old defensive system so-calles as “Djanlaq corridor. Quba one of the most beautiful cities of Azerbaijan, literally rising up in a spring by its parks and gardens. There are a number of historical monuments such us XIV century fortress, mosk (XIX century), middle age bathes, pretty rich ethnography museum, etc.
Near Quba there are number of quite scenic nature locations, such as Gechresh forest, Balbulaq forest, canyon Tanggealti, waterfall Afruja, hot spings and many others.aking a rest under the trees we will stop for a lunch and then move to Tanggalti canyon where walls can reach up 600 meters. It is an ideal place for photo session for those who are in love with the mountains. Road makes us go up and up – to the final point of our journey – Afruja waterfall.
On a road back we will visit Chiraq Castle. The remnains of Chiraq Castle sit very impressively at 1200m on a cliff top above the forested sanatorium of QalaAlti and associated Mashrif village. It’s one of the few castle ruins in Azerbaijan to retain a real castle-shaped silhouette and makes a worthwhile and reasonably easy diversion if you’re driving between Baku and Quba.
