Shushi Fortress was built in the 18th century in The Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh. It was the property of Melik-Shahnazaryan, the leader of Vananda. This medieval city-fortress had secret paths, which lead to the Karkar River.

The fortress walls, inaccessible for those times, served reliable support and storage of weapons; they were built of limestone. The walls of 7-8 m high were strengthened with semicircle towers. A number of caves in South of the fortress played fundamental role in the defensive system of Shushi. 

It would be very interesting to see Tnjri tree in Skhtorashen during your visit to Nagorno-Karabakh.
