Akhty's historic quarter
Travel Warning WARNING: Travel to Dagestan is strongly discouraged, due to high criminal activity, frequent bombings, and general lawlessness and crime. As Chechnya's neighbour, Chechen terrorists often target Russians in Dagestan in bombings and other terrorist acts. At the same time, Salafist extremists (largely foreign) have engaged in violent conflict against native, moderate Sufi groups, in pursuit of the establishment of Sharia law. If you are planning to visit Dagestan, consult your embassy before you are planning a trip to this region.
