Dagestan — to the country of mountains for the weekend. Sightseeing tour

Dagestan is an unexplored region with amazing nature and ancient culture. We will see the ancient fortress of Naryn-Kala, which defended Derbent from the invasion of nomads for a thousand years. There was a "crossroads of civilizations" through which the famous Silk Road passed.

We will also plunge into the life and culture of this interesting region by taking a guided tour of the Old Town. And what photos will we take against the background of the masterpieces of nature — the Sary-Kum dune and in the Sulak Canyon!
