This is a beautiful part of Azerbaijan with a rich and ancient history. Back in the days, this city (Kabbalah) was the capital of Caucasian Albania (an ancient state that used to exist on the territory of modern Azerbaijan) for 600 years. Up to the present time you can still see the ruins of the ancient city and the main gate of Caucasian Albania. There are a great number of historical and cultural monuments covering different eras in this region.
Several 5 star hotels of the Azerbaijani hotel chain, Qafqaz, small family hotels, and several tourist camps are in operation in Gabala.
The largest amusement park in Azerbaijan – Gabaland is located in Gabala, covering an area of 16 hectares. It’s great fun for kids and adults alike.
The town also hosts an annual international music festival of classical music, jazz and Mugham, which is attended by bands, performers and artists from around the world.
