Vladikavkaz (Russian: Владикавка́з; Ossetian: Дзæуджыхъæу) is the capital of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, Russia.
The Georgian Military Highway, crossing the mountains, was constructed in 1799 to link the city with Georgia to the south, and in 1875 a railway was built to connect it to Rostov-on-Don and Baku in Azerbaijan.
Vladikavkaz resumed its old name, which means "Ruler of the Caucasus", shortly before the fall of the Soviet Union.
