This is a 10-day tour exploring the Jewish history and heritage of Azerbaijan, including visits to top-rated museums, ancient synagogues, UNESCO world heritage sites, and more.
This day trip takes you around the beautiful city of Guba to get a full experience of what the city has to offer. You will visit the Guba Carpet factory to see the women who make handmade carpets and the Qechresh forest for an amazing panoramic view . The last stop will be to the Red Village, also called the Jewish Settlement Area, which is believed to be the only completely Jewish town outside of Israel and the United States. Here, you will have the opportunity to learn all about the "Mountain Jews" and their incredible history that dates back to the 18th century.
Travel with an expert! Come join me on an exploration of the Jewish history in the region of the famous Jewish village. As a researcher of Mountain Jewish history and a native English (וגם עברית) speaker, you won't find a high-quality, more in-depth tour of Quba than with me and my company Moreshet Adventures. A variety of tour opportunities exist: just the village, the village + region (culture and Jewish history), with options for continuing into the local mountains and Shabbat experiences in the village.
