Albanian Church Tour


Gedabey is one of the underrated cities of Azerbaijan. However, Gedabey has rich social, cultural and historical heritage, such as presumably pre-Christian living settlements, Christianity of Caucasian Albania, to explore. This heritage belongs to so-called ‘Khojaly-Gedabey-Culture.’ Taking into consideration ‘Khojaly-Gedabey Culture’ is under Armenian occupation, Gedabey is a valuable place to discover those cultural monuments. Additionally, landscape of Gedabey is mountainous, which is an excellent opportunity to escape modernity of cities. In other words, while exploring cultural heritage, you will be able to enjoy nature, nature you may experience all kinds of weather conditions in a single day.
