General İnformation About Tour:

Included:

  • Transfer
  • Local Guide in Russian and English

                       Xan Garden

The central historical park often rates as one of the first things to do in Ganja. Between 1786 and 1804, Javad Khan became the last Khan of the Ganja Khaqanate before the Russian Empire took control. Back when Javad was in power, he enjoyed nature and planted several trees inside his garden. The Soviets destroyed most of it. Today, locals come here to relax and play board games among the shady trees. A small stage sits towards the far side of the garden.

                         Imamzadeh

Imamzadeh is a term for a shrine-tomb of the descendants of Imams, who are directly related to Muhammad. These shrines are only for the descendants of imams and they are not for imams themselves. Imamzadehs are also sayyids, though not all sayyids are considered imamzadehs. These shrine-tombs are used as centers of Shi’i devotion and pilgrimages. These shrine-tombs are also believed to have miraculous properties and the ability to heal. Many of these are located in Iraq, Medina, India and Iran.

                           Nizami Ganja

(1141–1209), Nizami Ganje’i,Nizami, or Nezāmi, whose formal name was Jamal ad-Dīn Abū Muḥammad Ilyās ibn-Yūsuf ibn-Zakkī, was a 12th-century Azery Muslim poet. Nezāmi is considered the greatest romantic epic poet in Persian literature, who brought a colloquial and realistic style to the Persian epic. His heritage is widely appreciated and shared by Afghanistan,Azerbaijan,Iran, the Kurdistan region and Tajikistan.

                            Bottle House

Two-story bottle house was built by Ibrahim Jafarov, a resident of Ganja in 1966-67 from glass bottles of different shapes and sizes, and colorful stones brought from Sochi. 48000 bottles was used in construction.
The construction of this house was dedicated to the memory of Ibrahim Jafarov’s brother who went missing during World War II. The construction year of the house was written on the wall of the front porch. A big portrait of missing brother Yusif Jafarov was drawn underneath the protrusion of the roof at the front. Additionally, the walls of the house were decorated with notes about Olympic Games held in USSR in 1980s, and the name and portrait of the owner.
The words “Ganja” (the historic name of the city) were written on the different parts of the building with the bottoms of bottles
The house was reconstructed recently and is a popular destination for citizens and tourists.

                          Gedabek

The railway route from the Siemens Mine in Gedabek to Copper Refining Plant in Galakent was built during 1879-1883. The railway was also travelling through Duzyurd, Sabatkechmaz, Chalburun villages. There are sources says that it was 28 km long, some others report that it was more than 30km. The route also had an extension to south-east of Gedabeg city where major smeltery infrastructures can be observed from pictures of that time. The landscape was very complicated, therefore, the route goes through mountain downstream or hard rock on ridge of mountains. On the downstream, arch-bridges have been built. The largest bridges have 7 or 8 arches. Currently there are more than 21 arch-bridges in various scale on the route. Some of the bridges are as the same as they 100 years ago, but some of them are up to collapse from impact of downstream wash-away and human related destruction.

                            Ivanovka Village

Ivanovka has a time-warp fascination: it’s one of the last remaining ”kolxoz” (collective farms) to have survived from the Soviet time and even retains the CCCP rosette on its welcome sign. The population has a high percentage of blond-haired, blue-eyed Russians – mostly descendants of various puritanical protestant sects who had been effectively banished from Russia proper in the mid-19th century. Many houses also have a Russian look with red-tiled roofs and wooden uppers.
