Ganja

Azerbaijan.. I heard so much about this country, about its people, about its culture. I didn’t know what should I believe and what not. That is why I’m truly happy to be able to discover this country. Moreover, I had the chance to judge on the country not based on its capital, that sometimes doesn’t shows the real spirit of the country.

Ganja is the second large city in Azerbaijan. It is constantly changing, leaving behind its dull Soviet past. According to medieval Arabic sources, the city of Ganja was founded in 859-60 and during its live changed several empires. It didn’t have an easy life. It was destroyed and rebuild more times. You can feel in the air the history of the city, the changes that happened in it.
