Good to Go

You can holiday to Azerbaijan without having to quarantine either on your arrival in the country or on your return to the UK. There are also no travel advisories in place against travel from the FCDO meaning you can book with complete peace of mind.

This Palace is considered one of modern Azerbaijan’s most prized pieces of architecture. Built in 1763 as the summer residence to Sheki’s ruling family, it was built on a hill, above the city and surrounded by gardens and fortified walls.

The palace is now recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site and hosts six rooms over the two floors. The 36 meter exterior facade is covered with exquisite patterns, peacocks and Islam-inspired motifs in dark blue, turquoise and ochre tiles.

The interior features stained glass in wooden window frames - a local variety known as Shebeke – without using nails or glue. The rooms are covered with paintings depicting folk stories and nature. Any remaining surfaces have been filled with floral tile panels and mosaics.
