War sights in Shushi
- Sort by:
A fine medieval wall protects the eastern ramparts of the town - you'll see it on the left as you approach the town from the highway. The fortress was built in 1750 by Panah Khan. The Azeri army used the town heights to fire barrages of Grad missiles down onto Stepanakert and surrounding villages. It was conquered by a stunning night assault up the cliffs on 8-9 May 1992, a crucial turning point in the conflict.
