Exhibition to the 2000th Anniversary of Derbent

The State History Museum has opened an exhibition on the history of Derbent, one of the oldest cities of Russia.

      In 2015 Derbent has turned 2000 years old.

      Derbent was one of the largest centers on the Great Silk Way. The city witnessed a great number of historical events. In 2003 ancient Derbent and its fortifications were included into the UNESCO World Heritage List.

      The exposition in the State History Museum falls into five sections. The first one presents archeological finds, the earliest of them dating to the 4th millennium B.C. The Medieval epoch is represented with manuscripts and Dagestan authors's writings in the Arabic language. The audience will also see household items of ancient Derbent dwellers, a  collection of weapons, and  modern works of art.
