  • A short drive from Baku but very pretty and some interesting historical information. Great place for photographers to visit.  more »
  • Traveled with a small group in 10 people were people trained and focused on this place. But for me everything was for the first time: information well-organized thoughtful interactive museum, which is suitable for both children and adults. After the Museum and guided tours with our remarkable Eldar, was interesting to search and find drawings of prehistoric people. Rocks and stones of unusual forms! The weather was excellent, the views and the expanse of stunning! Be in Azerbaijan and does not show it is unacceptable!

  • From Baku only an hour by car. The Museum opens at 10 am. If not hot, very interesting to wander nasklnye look pictures since the Mesolithic. Beautiful stone landscapes.

  • Very beautiful and interesting place to visit. The carvings in the rocks are fascinating, there are excellent views to admire and some picture perfect spots, where you can whip out your camera and take some incredible selfies and pictures of your friends and loved ones you're visiting with.
  • A really enjoyable spot, starts with a visit to the visitor centre then up the hill to the Rock Art site, excellent views and opportunity to see the rock art. Reasonably easy walking but possibly avoid if you have very limited mobility Well worth a visit
  • I came here twice, the second time bringing my class of international students. The park guides were incredibly knowledgeable of the history of rock art carvings world wide and had a deep appreciation for their work here at Gobustan. I was really impressed and had a great experience learning about the ancient history of this place.
  • Petroglyphs from thousands of years ago. One can recognize the evolution of human thought and culture through Petroglyphs from different time periods.
  • Great place, But the drinks there very expensive. Have to see it. The museum is perfect
