This ancient city is the major city in the Quba Rayon. Quba is famous for producing high quality apples. In late summer, cars stuffed with apples are often see on the road carrying the fruit from Guba to other regions or from small towns to the city’s cannery. Guba is also the hub for many summer vacationers. It attracts visitors with its cooler summer climate and beautiful mountain scenery. Guba is built on the western bank of the Qudailchay River. On the eastern bank is a rather exclusive Jewish community known as Red Settlement (Qırmızı Qesebe in Azeri or Krasnaya Sloboda in Russian), because of the collection of red roofs that can be seen from the nearby hilltop. The houses in Quba are noticeably smaller than the neighboring community. Village, which is known as Gechresh is famous for everybody, who has ever been in Quba. This village is remembered by numerous seating areas , which are located in a dense forest where sunlight does not penetrate , and the road through the forest where virtually every traveler makes the photo for memory .
