Where to stay in Dagestan

About Dagestan

Officially known as the Republic of Dagestan, Dagestan lies at the southernmost tip of Russia overlooking the Caspian Sea. It’s home to around 30 different ethnic groups and more than 80 nationalities, making it one of the most ethnically diverse regions in Russia.

Things to do

From its UNESCO-listed city to its record-breaking canyon, Dagestan offers off-the-beaten-path adventures away from the tourist track.

Cruise the Sulak Canyon. One of the most spectacular natural destinations in Dagestan is the Sulak Canyon, a 53-kilometre-long, steep-sided ravine carved by the Sulak River. It descends to more than 1,900 metres (making it deeper than the Grand Canyon) and is an important nesting site for griffon and black vultures.

Marvel at the Chirkey Dam. Spanning the Sulak River is one of the tallest dams in Russia, the Chirkey Dam, which supports power production at the Chirkeisk Hydro Power Plant. Constructed in the 1960s, it plunges 232.5 metres and stretches 338 metres in length, with the capacity to withhold a reservoir containing 2.7 billion cubic metres of water.

Visit Derbent. Overlooking the Caspian Sea is the ancient city of Derbent, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend a day wandering its cobblestoned streets lined with medieval baths, historic fortresses and soaring mosque minarets, with a visit to the 2,500-year-old castle of Naryn Kala a “must”.

Shop for handicrafts in Kubachi. Dagestan is home to several villages known for their handicrafts and Kubachi is one of the most famous. In addition to purchasing pottery produced by the village women, you can participate in workshops and try your hand at ceramics while meeting the locals.

Getting around

Mezhdunarodnyy Aeroport Makhachkala is the main aviation gateway to Dagestan and has regular flights to destinations across Russia. Trains connect from Baku in neighbouring Azerbaijan to Makhachkala and Derbent, as well as to St. Petersburg and Moscow. Buses are the main means of getting around Dagestan while having your own vehicle will give you greater freedom to explore.
