Azerbaijan, stretching from the shores of the Caspian Sea to the Caucasus mountains, or, in other words, between Iran and Russia, was an important point on the Silk Road trading route, so the traces of Soviet, Persian and Turkish influences are scattered through the country.
Despite modern elements around the country, fueled due to abundant oil deposits, Azerbaijan has preserved its old traditions and historical heritage. Its capital Baku, a cosmopolitan city with futuristic architecture and ancient mosques, opulent shoppling streets and narrow cobbled lanes, creates a truly unforgettable impression. Here, in Azerbaijan, you will find two of the oldest cities in the Caucasus, Kabala and Nakhichevan, stunning stained glass windows in Sheki, or old carpet factory in Quba.
And did you know that Azerbaijan has the highest number of mud volcanoes in the world? About 300 of the 700-800 mud volcanoes in the world are located here. For nature lovers the country offers numerous great opportunities, from sandy beaches of warm Caspian Sea and thermal springs to healing salt caves and picturesque mountain resorts (Masalli, Naftalan, Ganja) looking at the rocky peaks.
