Holiday in Lankaran: reviews by tourists

Spending a vacation for lazy lying on the sand is not in my spirit. I decided to spend my precious time of rest with benefit and to improve my health. On friends’ advice I flew to a small town called Lankaran in Azerbaijan.

The flight was comfortable and did not have to change planes. The airport was not big, but it was clean and comfortable, there were cafes and stores. The sanatorium, which accommodated me, has the same name as the city, which greeted me quite hospitably. Those wishing to relax here should take into account that most of the locals adhere to the Islamic faith, so you should not walk in too open defiant clothing. As well as look at the point-blank faces of the female sex, although, perhaps, it would be inappropriate in any country.

Of the interesting features of the resort I will allocate the unusual beaches of black sand. It is strongly heated in the sun, walking on it without shoes is doubtful pleasure. As for the Caspian Sea, the water is warm and clear, you may swim there whenever you want.

There is a monument of true love in the city – khan Mirakhmedhan built a three-storeyed palace for his beloved Tugra. The construction of Khan Evi (Khan’s Palace) was influenced by the Transcaucasian beauty contest, which won the Khan’s wife. Nowadays the Museum of Local Lankaran is situated here. I particularly remember the part of the exposition devoted to Muslim Magomayev.

The legend about the origins of the town’s name is interesting. Finding themselves in such a beautiful fairy tale place, the travelers were just “lazy” to leave it – Lenkoran. I myself did not want to leave.

The wonderful eastern city – Lenkoran

Oksana Alexandrova

Lankaran is a colorful, eastern city in the south-east of Azerbaijan. I stayed there with my family, in a hotel located in the seaside area. I liked it very much. It was unlike anything else, unusual – so to say about the time spent at the resort.

There is clean air, very warm – not below 27 degrees, sea water and dark – gray, fine, healing sand. Practically empty beach – few tourists, very quiet, no noisy entertainment. Beach rest – fine, the only thing that brought discomfort – a stony entrance to the sea, we had to put rubber flip-flops. We were warmly welcomed and our expectations were taken into account.

The town is not small, traditional Islamic. There are a couple of mosques, one was built near the seafront, it seemed that it was built not so long ago, and another one – built in the 19th century, called Kichik Bazar, the word “kichik” means “small”, if I understood correctly, the mosque used to be surrounded by a small market, now – no market. Another attraction is the house of Talysh khan, which now houses the museum of local history. It is a three-storey house built of white stone and red brick with white trim – the building itself is very interesting to look at, and you can enter the museum for free. Tea-house in the center was especially memorable – at the tables the men, despite the heat, dressed in suits, drink tea from the glasses, resembling a jug without a handle. The population treats the newcomers with restraint and tact, although walking around the city, you can notice the curious glances.

Ancient Lankaran

Lankaran is a very ancient Azerbaijani city, its special beauty is due to the rich relief of the area. People lived here since the Bronze Age. The city borders with lowlands in the north and the Caspian Sea in the southeast. And also, which is not typical of Azerbaijan, there are many rivers in Lankaran. Unfortunately, I was in this city not for a long time, and now I’m saving up to explore it properly. Besides picturesque places and sights, the city has a special drink – Lankaran tea. It has an interesting taste and a reddish hue, very different from its supermarket counterparts. Lankaran has perfectly preserved sights, so you can vividly imagine how people lived in distant times. I visited the Lankaran fortress. It was built in the 18th century and looked very intimidating to the enemies. For its time, the fortress was very high, with sharp teeth and deep ditches around the fortress filled with water. But in the 19th century, the fortress was still conquered by Russian soldiers. The capture of the fortress influenced the history of the state, because after that the Gulistan peace was concluded.



Lankaran is one of the interesting cities of Azerbaijan. It is worthwhile to visit this city and it does not take much money. Azerbaijanis themselves associate this city with lemons, because they grow lemons and also mandarins and kiwis in Lankaran. The city itself is located on the shore of the Caspian Sea. The nature there is marvelous. One can fly from Moscow to Lankaran. If you go there you can improve your health. The sand on the coast is black and has curative properties. One can reside in the sanatorium in Lankaran, which includes health-medical complex. There are several hotels in the city.
