Derbent is a live eastern city, and its respectable age didnt dry it, but only added color to the city. The age of the city is counted even not in centuries - the emergence of the settlements in this place, at the Caspian Gate is related to IV millennium BC by the scientists, and the city has existed here since VI century BC.
