Brief information about Shaki city:
Shaki is a city in northwestern Azerbaijan and surrounded by snowy peaks of the Greater Caucasus.
Perhaps the best-known aspect of Shaki cooking is its rich sweet dishes. Shaki is traditionally held as the home of special type of baklava, called Shaki Halva.Others include nabat boiled sugar and sweet pesheveng.
Shaki hosts a wealth of historical museums and some of the most important in the country.
The city is home of annual Mugham Festival and Silk Road International Music Festival.
Architecture in Shaki has largely been shaped by Shaki's history. It goes back to a time, when it was a market centre on the Silk Road, linking Dagestan, Russia to the northern trade routes through the Caucasus.
The city's central and main open city squares are dominated by two Soviet towers.Many public places and private houses in Shaki are decorated with shebeke, a wooden lattice of pieces of coloured glass, held together without glue or a single nail.The technique is complex and known only to a few artisans who pass their meticulous craft from generation to generation.
