Shusha is one of the most beautiful and sightseeing cities in Azerbaijan. The word “Shusha”, which means the name of this city, comes from the word “glass”, which symbolizes the pure, unusually transparent mountain air of this land. Nature has given Shusha unique springs and mineral waters. The names of Turshsu, Isabulagi, Sakina spring, Isti spring, Soyuk spring, Charikh spring, Sakhsi spring, Qirx spring, Yuz spring and other springs prove it.
The city of Shusha is surrounded on both sides by a strong fortress wall. The establishment of the city is connected with the establishment of the Karabakh khanate in the XVIII century and the growth of its power.
