Nakhchivan, the central city of Azerbaijan's Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, is famous for its amazing scenery, beautiful sunsets and striking heights. 

The region is closely linked with ancient Eastern civilizations like the other regions of Azerbaijan, and has left a deep trace on the course of historical development.

Archeological research conducted in the territory has revealed samples of material culture dating back to the 2nd and 1st millennia B.C.E.

The region abounds with historical monuments, including ancient Gamigaya, Farhad house, Ajhabi-Kahf, Yusuf ibn Kuseyr tomb, Momina Khatun tomb, Tomb of the Gulistan, Khanagah tomb, Qazanchi bridge, Nakhchivan Juma Mosque, and Qesariyya monument.

The region also enjoys clear water rivers, beautiful blue springs, and so much more. Beautiful color of springs maybe surprised you at some photos that present the natural beauty of Nakhchivan, but those who have seen them live say that the feeling is incomparable. 

The ‘Girls` s Spring’ is the most popular and certainly the most well – known spring in Nakchivan.  The road to the spring is available to everyone and those wishing to see the turquoise jewel will easily find it.

Here are incredibly beautiful photos of the spring in winter.
