The ancient Azerbaijani city of Sheki become one of a handful of cultural sites from around the world to be added to UNESCO’s prestigious World Heritage list in Baku earlier this week. Sheki is nestled in the lush green forests of the cooler mountainous region to the north of Azerbaijan. It is surrounded by the snowy peaks of the Greater Caucasus, a 1,200-kilometre mountain range that stretches from the Black Sea to the Caspian over Russia, Georgia and Azerbaijan, splitting Eastern Europe from Western Asia.
