Surrounded by the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus Mountains, Azerbaijan is a low–lying country famed for its medieval walled old city which contains the Palace of the Shirvanshahs described as “one of the pearls of architecture” in the country.
Due to its petroleum and natural gas – the country has blazing fires around the Peninsula which flames jet into the air 3 meters high.
Get lost in the old city’s maze of alleys, mosques, historic buildings and remnants, and the Maiden Tower.
Azerbaijan is a mix of cultures – influences from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East in terms of culture, religion, traditions, and of course, cuisines or food. Its capital city is a blend of Paris and Dubai, yet the Soviet marks are illuminating around its cities.
Azerbaijan is a great place to visit in any season and visitors are welcome year-round.
