Lagich is a lost city in the mountains

The village of Lagich is located in the Ismayilli region of Azerbaijan and is a unique example of the town-planning and architectural art of antiquity. This town with paved streets and squares is one of the most famous shopping centers in the Middle East and beyond its borders in the Middle Ages. In Lahic you can find products made of metal (copper, tin, silver), leather, chasing, skilled craftsmen and wood carvers live and work here. The fame of lagic people was the manufacture of cold weapons and copper dishes decorated with decorated ornaments. To this day, here are open from a dozen workshops, where hereditary blacksmiths in front of astonished tourists make various items of utensils. The very first quarter of Lahic was laid in the III-IV centuries. It is noteworthy that the city has a water supply and sewerage system, which is no less than 1,500 years! None of the local residents know where the water pipe starts and where it ends, and by what principle it works, which does not prevent the system from functioning for many centuries. Today, Lagich is a monument of old-age slum, under the protection of the state, whose pristine appearance has been preserved.
