Area Info & Activities

The fortress of Naryn-Kala
The Derbent fortress was the defensive construction of the Sasanid state, the city of Derbent. This city needed defense because of its close location with the sea, the population was afraid of disembarking enemy troops ashore, so the fortress was erected. Naryn-Kala translates as "The Locked Gate". Historians make the assumption that it was built under Alexander the Great.
