An event related to the "Shusha year"

Shusha, the crown of Karabakh, is a sacred and dear place for our people. Shusha’s love is an integral part of the spiritual existence of every Azerbaijani. The city of Shusha, founded in 1752 by Panahali Khan, Khan of Karabakh and celebrating its 270th anniversary this year, has gone through a rich development path and played an exceptional role in the cultural and social-political life of Azerbaijan and the entire South Caucasus. This city, which has always preserved its unique historical appearance and the unique environment it formed, has written remarkable pages in the annals of our literary, cultural, scientific and social thought with its great personalities.
