The Caucasian Silk Road

Language: Japanese

In the 6th century the North Caucasus became the arena of collision of interests between powerful empires of Byzantium and Persia. The reason was very significant — they fought for the control over vital trade routes of the Silk Road passing across the Caucasus.
The Silk Road going across the North Caucasus was used by merchants until 1453, when the falling of Constantinople caused the silk trade froze.
