Famous as the birthplace of legendary poet Nizami, Ganja is a truly ancient city still bearing traces of the myriad kingdoms and empires that ruled over it in the past.
Change things up with a short trip to Sheki Khan's Palace in Sheki (about 2 hours away).

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Ganja sightseeing planner.

Cork, Ireland to Ganja is an approximately 19-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Cork to Ganja. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Cork in September: high temperatures in Ganja hover around 32°C and lows are around 20°C.

A truly contemporary city criss-crossed by history, Baku offers everything from the modern elegance of the Flame Towers to the medieval UNESCO-listed Old City at its core.
