Ghost towns and hot springs meet illegal existence
Voghju’yn, Armenia and Russian are spoken in Nagorno Karabakh, the disputed splinter state that unilaterally declared independence from Azerbaijan in 1992. Locals are friendly, and glad to have visitors, and town are small. The scars of war are visible in the form of ruined towns, but the country is safe these days and despite its small size there’s plenty to see. Popular Zuar hot springs let you soak in peace and nature with a load of locals, and history is everywhere, from the 13th century monasteries of Hadrut to Azokh, a system of caves once inhabited by primitive man. If you want to get off the beaten track, and can’t wait to drink litres of mulberry vodka, then VISIT NAGORNO KARABAKH!
