Gobustan

 
Gobustan Numerous caves and rock outcroppings surround this village, whose name can be translated as ravine land. The spurs of the Great Caucasus Range descend to the Caspian along the Djeirankechmez river.

Should you want to get the perfect photos as seen on the postcards, the trick is simple: fill t...

Agdam

 
Agdam Once a thriving city of 150.000 souls with its own airfield, capital of Agdam rayon, today Agdam is the consummated portrait of the devastation brought about by the Nagorno Karabakh war, it was lost to Armenian forces in July 1993. Although Agdam was not affected directly by bombardments or the place of combats, the city was systematically destroyed and looted by the Armenian forces. The mosque was the only building spared, although covered in graffiti. As in a nightmare you'll find street after street of empty and gutted buildings, where the birds and the weeds started to take over. No people, no cars, no sounds - a ghostly atmosphere. Following the collapse of the Azeri defenses all the population was forced...
 

Agstafa

 
Agstafa Small provincial town located near the Georgian and Armenian borders, Agstafa was founded in 1914 as Elisavetinka, mainly as a railway junction. In Agstafa the railway coming from Baku splits in two: one going north to Tblisi via Rustavi and another going east to Yerevan via Qazax and Dilizhan. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the conflict with Armenia made Agstafa's role less important, as the rail and road connections to Armenia have been closed. The Armenian border is naturally also closed but you can cross to Georgia at Krasny Most. Krasny Most is Russian for 'Red Bridge', after the existing and still operating 12th century masonry bridge. The old bridge has been replaced in 1998 as the main crossing by the ...

In the pre-Soviet period the present area of the district was part of the Jabrail uyezd, formed in 1875, which was even larger. After the fall of Fizuli to Armenian forces, Jebrail and almost the entire rayon were lost to Armenian forces in August 26, 1993 and has been un...
