Take the road less travelled and visit Azerbaijan! Enjoy the Caspian Sea to the east, or the vast Caucasus mountain ranges found to the north and west.
Why Visit Azerbaijan?
Boasting temperate weather year-round, as an intercontinental country, Azerbaijan offers a magical combination of climates and culture from both Europe and Asia. Explore metropolitan cities and historical villages untouched by modernity, or wander along the beautiful beaches.
Must-sees in Azerbaijan
The country’s capital city, Baku, is the recommended starting point. It acts as Azerbaijan’s economic, political and cultural centre. It has often been likened to Dubai, thanks to its stunning architecture and penchant for all things gold. Fans of volcanoes will also be in luck, as the country is home to more than half of the world’s mud volcanoes!
Baku Fortress and the Old City
The first location in Azerbaijan to be given UNESCO World Heritage site status, Baku’s Old City is truly breath-taking. Located within the protective ancient walls of its fortress, visitors can enjoy the splendour of ancient buildings, such as the Maiden Tower, which offers a beautiful view of the Old City as well as Baku Bay.
