Congrats. Presently you have to cause the following stage so as to bring your outsider life partner home and choose which sort of Visa best suits your specific case. There are four kinds of Visas you can browse K1, K3, IR1/CR1 and DFC. K1 Visa just works for couples that are not hitched at this point, which means their conjugal status is locked in. It around takes seven months to get it, yet it requires Adjustment of Status once you wed your American resident life partner after entering the nation.

Are you in search of a cool, evergreen place to rest? Then I got a perfect suggestion for you – Gabala city.

Gabala, which is located about 225 km away from the capital city of Azerbaijan, is a perfect place for rest and tourism. The weather here is mild in spring and autumn, hot in summer and cold in winter. In addition to marvelous weather, Gabala suggests gorgeous historical monuments, which emerge all around the city and its vicinity.

The city during six centuries served as the capital of the ancient state of Caucasian Albania. Archeological investigations give an evidence that Gabala functioned as the capital of Albania as early as 4th century BC. The ruins of the ancient town are situated in 15 km south-west of the modern site of Gabala where you can stay at Qebelede gunluk kiraye evler, in the village of Chukhur Gabala on the territory between Garachay and Jourluchay rivers. Here you can find the ancient walls and towers.

The fact that Gabala was located in the middle of the 2,500-year-old Silk Road turned the city in a popular and important hub between Europe and Asia. That’s why Gabala has been always desired by many foreign rulers.

Thus, in the 60s BC, Roman troops attacked Caucasian Albania, but did not succeed in capturing the Qabala territory due to the mightiness of that ancient state of Azerbaijan. Gabala then was occupied by Shirvanshah Fariburz, King David IV of Georgia in 1120, Mongol khan Timurleng in 1386, Safavid shah Tahmasib I in 1538, Persian Nader Shah in 1734, but despite all the captures, this ancient city was able to preserve its culture and identity.

Due to its historical importance, Gabala preserved a number of fascinating landmarks. The most outstanding of them are an old tower of defense purposes (9-11th centuries), a mosque of the 13th century, Imam Baba mausoleum (18-19th centuries), Juma mosque and, surely, Historical Ethnography Museum that involves thousands of historical artifacts of the city.

By the way, a stunning news came recently from an ancient settlement Galayeri in Gabala. Thousands of artifacts made of clay, stones, metal, and bones have been found at the site, which has a history dating back to the first half of the 4th millennium BC.

Another interesting fact has been the discovery of an ancient catacomb at the site, which dates back to the same period when the site was first settled – some 6,000 years ago. So, it is more ancient than any other catacomb found in Europe and the Caucasus! Moreover, archaeologists also discovered a human skeleton buried with more than a hundred jewelries and 30 potteries in the Dizakhli village of Gabala.
