After, we’ll visit the local market to experience the organized chaos and stalls spilling over with local produce and homemade wine. Following our nose, we’ll make our way to some fresh zhingyalov hats, a mouthwatering flatbread stuffed with herbs and the perfect appetizer for our scenic lunch overlooking Stepanakert.
We’ll spend the rest of the afternoon at the centuries-old fortress city of Shushi, wandering its ancient streets and chatting with locals. Ascend the towers of the Shushi Fortress for a ridiculous view, then visit the Museum of Karabakh Carpets to admire the handiwork of the women behind these intricate woven masterpieces and learn the history of this predominantly female trade. Meals: breakfast and lunch
