Sheki’s main attraction is the twin summer and winter palaces of the Sheki Khans. With its plasterwork, intricate stained-glass windows and exquisite frescoes, the summer palace is considered modern Azerbaijan’s most prized piece of historical architecture.
At the crossroads of East and West, Sheki once sat on the legendary Silk Road. Silk factories and shops still line the town’s charming cobblestoned streets. Another highlight is the Sheki Karvansaray Hotel, a stone caravanserai of 600 rooms.
