Derbent, March 30, 2020 

The Derbent Reserve Museum, which is closed for visitors from March 30 to April 3 due to the coronavirus, will post on its YouTube channel an exhibition on the city’s history in picturesque paintings, reported TASS.

Derbent, one of the oldest cities in Russia and in the world, is located on the coast of the Caspian Sea. In 2015 the city celebrated its 2000th anniversary. At the same time the first settlements existed on this territory more than 5 thousand years ago. In 2003, UNESCO listed the Naryn-Kala citadel, an ancient city, including the 8th century Juma mosque and Derbent fortresses, as World Heritage Sites of the Sassanid Empire and subsequent cultures.
