Gobustan... For some people it is a museum under the open sky,for the others it is just cold walls with drawings of nice dancing men. Gobustan is a miracle and a sacred palace. There isn't rich nature, but more than 40000 years ago people lived here. People came to Gobustan,carried out rituals and brought gifts. "Gobu" means "a place hidden from people's eyes" in Turkish. There are a lot of pictures of men,women and animals. The oldest is a huge fish 4 meters 30 centimeters long. The drawn fish belongs to the class of whales. Scientists puzzle over the drawing which seems to show a connection of the Caspian Sea and the World Ocean.
