|Göytepe (Priship / Prishib)||
Göytepe used to house a Soviet garrison but now both military and civilian Russians are gone. The main attraction are the numerous old Russian houses, built in wood in the northern style. There is also an Orthodox church, which lies semi-abandoned as there is no longer a Christian community.
The town is crossed by a small river that continues to the marshes. You can relax in a nice chaikhana near the bridge, but beware of the mosquitoes.
Göytepe has a small privately owned hotel, with friendly staff and decent accommodation and amenities (near the river).
