Gobustan Tour. (4 hours) Gobustan is an open-air museum overflowing with Neolithic rock drawings. Gobustan’s petroglyphs are referred to various epochs. They were made from the10th -18th centuries BC to the Middle Ages.
The drawings clearly reflect the entire evolution of humans. Here are the scenes of mountain goat hunting, ceremonial dances with spears – the most ancient period of time, Mesolithic. Now you see the images of horse and unmounted hunting, battles, collective work, harvesting, a woman near the fire. These are the first centuries AD – transition to a new level of social order. Closer to the Middle Ages the drawings decrease in sizes and become more schematically. In 2007 Gobustan was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
