Have you ever been granted to see the paradise on Earth? If not, you should visit Shamakhi . It is one of the oldest cities in Azerbaijan which is located 122 km from Baku, in the foothills of the Greater Caucasus Range. Shamakhi is very famous for its nature. Located at the foot of the mountains, Pirgulu Resort has a great popularity among tourists. The famous Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory, named after Nasreddin Tusi (Persian polymath, architect, philosopher, physician, scientist, and theologian) is also here.

Silent Lake

If you are a nature lover and you have decided to visit this incredibly breathtaking city, you must definitely see the Silent Lake, hidden between the mountains. Silent Lake Shamakhi is situated 125 km from Baku and can be reached very easily from there. It’s a fantastic place to get rid of the hustle and bustle of the big city, to relax and to have a great time with your family and loved ones. This paradise has paths with awesome views of surroundings which is a fantastic opportunity to try quadricycling or cycling, to play a tennis or just to have a walk. İn addition to the beautiful scenery, tourists can taste a national and European high-quality food and enjoy the live music. Do you know what could be the most fascinating and memorable moments for you in Silent Lake Shamakhi? I can definitely say fishing moments. By renting the little boat, you can spend all day on the lake and fishing. Finally, the fish you catch will be served to you in the Gold Fish restaurant.

Safari Park

For the first time, after Africa, a safari park was created in Shamakhi. Tourists coming to the park can take pictures and get detailed information about wild animals here. For the creation of ecological reserves for wild animals, 480 hectares of land within the boundaries of the 620-hectare area of ​​the mountain-forest area called Pirqulu ,are fenced in accordance with international standards. Genetically valuable animals were imported here from Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary to the specially protected area. Significant work has been done to create the internal infrastructure of the environmental park. Much natural nourishment has been made for the animals. They also pay attention to their nutrition. At present, there are more than 800 animals, including 260 heads of noble deer, 250 head muffles and 280 heads of deer. Access to Safari Park is free for children up to 6 years old, 50% discount for children under 16 years old. At the same time, an administrative building and a guest house are available in the park .

At the end of the day in “paradise” I suggest you to finish your trip with a little bit romantic moments in Astrophysical Observatory, which is full of different kinds of telescopes. Use your chance to have a look at the Sun, Moon, visible planets and stars. I am sure that after your visit to this paradise on Earth, you will not forget these moments forever.
