The city is located on a narrow isthmus between the western coast of the Caspian Sea and the foothills of the Great Caucasus on the Sukhodol River, 40 km southwest of the border with Azerbaijan. Since ancient times it has been of strategic importance, as it represents a convenient passage between Transcaucasia and the North Caucasus.
