Lahic is village in Azerbaijan, located at 1375m of altitude in the southern slopes of Greater Caucasus. It is one of the most ancient human settlements in Azerbaijan and is populated by Iranian Tat people, who inhabited the area long before the Turkic Azeri people arrived. Lahic is a picturesque village, famous for its traditional coppersmiths. It's a quite small place - most houses are along the central street, which extends for a few hundred metres. Lahic can be reached by turning to the north from the road between Baku and Sheki and driving for 20km along the river valley.
