Local attractions

The unique beauty of nature, many monuments of culture and history made Quba, located in 168 km from Baku, one of the most attractive places for tourists. Quba has long attracted travelers from all over the world. At the time, Quba was visited by the famous French writer Alexander Dumas, the Russian writer Bestuzhev-Marlinsky, the famous Norwegian travel scholar Thor Heyerdahl.

Here on the northeast slope of the Greater Caucasus Range, at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level, is the famous Kudialchay River.

Foreign guests will be interested in the historical, cultural and natural monuments of the region, museums and original villages. For example, the Red Sloboda is a place of compact residence of Jews, or Khinalig, which has preserved a thousand-year way of life.

Invariable attention is enjoyed by natural attractions - the Afurdja waterfall and the Tengyaalty gorge, as well as the cultural traditions of the area, such as carpet weaving and national cuisine.

It is impossible not to mention the ancient Arched Bridge. The only bridge, called Gudialchay, that has survived to these days, is one of the seven existing in the Quba district in the 17th-19th centuries. Fourteen of its spans with a total length of 275 meters and a width of 8 meters are made of burnt bricks. A bridge of similar construction built in the XIX century is the only one in Azerbaijan.

We also recommend you to visit the Qubamemorial complex of genocide, erected in memory of tens of thousands of Azerbaijanis, who were victims of mass killings that were organized on the Azerbaijani land in 1918 by Bolshevik-Armenian armed groups. In 2007, during the construction work in Quba was accidentally discovered a mass grave, next to a memorial complex and a museum with a rich exposition based on historical documents and facts. 

Very interesting for tourists will be the bathhouse Chukhur Hamam, which was used for its intended purpose since 1985. Now the Chukhur Hamam was reconstructed, and this pearl of Azerbaijani architecture became a museum and presented almost in its original appearance. With this bathhouse, built in the 18th century from red brick, there are several associated memorable events, as well as tragic pages of the history of Azerbaijan. At one time in Chukhur Hamam washed Alexander Dumas, who visited Quba during the trip to Azerbaijan, and 150 years later his great-grandson also visited Quba. During the genocide, committed in 1918 by Armenians in Quba, in the bathhouse of Chukhur Hamam, they smothered innocent people, whose bodies were then thrown into dug pits. Today the Memorial was erected at the site of this “mass grave”. 

We are sure that the five-star "Quba Palace Hotel" will become another landmark of Azerbaijan and Quba.
