(English) Niyazabad port
It is another historical-strategic site in Khachmaz. Beginning from the 16th century, the port started to play an important role in establishing relations between Azerbaijan and neighbouring countries by sea. Despite disagreements between states, the Volga-Caspian trade route expanded trade relations with northern countries. The region exported silk, crafts and dried fruit to northern countries. A significant innovation in Caspian trade was that Shirvan established extensive trade relations with Western European countries, which also involved Genoese and Venetian merchants.
