A unique village in Azerbaijan

Here's a unique village in the Iranian province of East Azerbaijan, on northern slope of extinct volcano. The artful Azerbaijanians have constructed this unique village where the houses in village Kandovan are cut directly in rocks. The age of some of them exceeds 700 years. People had to chisel through these sharp rocks the rooms and insert the windows and doors. Some doors conduct small twisting ladders. The court yard have also additional economic constructions. Owners decorate the ancient dwellings with modern openwork lattices. Through time, inhabitants of these freakish rocks have expanded the houses with stone extensions. Balconies and bridges also increase inhabited space. In the center of the village is a five-star hotel.
