Mingachevir

MINGACHEVIROn the way from Ganja to Baku, on the banks of the river Kura lies Mingachevir, a city that originated in Soviet times, as “the all-Union construction of the century in the early 50s of the last century. Then, on the site of the flooded gorge, an artificial Mingachevir water reservoir was created and an Olympic base for rowing was built, where Soviet Olympians once trained. In the translation, the word “Mingechevir” means “go back, there is no way”, since it was no longer beyond the road – the majestic Caucasus Mountains stood around an insurmountable wall.
