About the City
Makhachkala, the capital of the Republic of Dagestan, is located in an astonishingly beautiful place. This one-of-a-kind city boasts Caspian Sea beaches, views of the Caucasus Mountains, a curative mud lake and the Sarykum sand dunes — unique for this region. Over two centuries, Makhachkala turned from a small military settlement into the largest urban centre of the North Caucasus Federal District. The most striking of the city’s old buildings is the Petrovsky lighthouse, dating back to the mid-19th century, while the pick of the modern structures is the vast Juma Mosque, modelled on Istanbul’s Blue Mosque. The Dagestan Aul Ethnographic Centre gives an insight into the life and traditions of the local people, while the vibrant cafés and restaurants dotted around Makhachkala serve delicious Dagestan, Avar, Kumyk and Dargin cuisine.
