UNESCO Director-General visits Gobustan National Historical-Artistic Reserve

Director-General of UNESCO Audrey Azoulay has visited Gobustan National Historical-Artistic Reserve.

She first viewed the exhibits at a museum created in the territory of the reserve.

In 2007 Gobustan was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site considered to be of “outstanding universal value” for the quality and density of its rock art engravings depicting images of hunting, fauna, flora and lifestyles in pre-historic times and for the cultural continuity between prehistoric and medieval times that the site reflects.
