Natural History Museum
A national historical landmark and a World Heritage Site, Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape preserves ancient stone relics, rock carvings, and mud volcanoes. Located on the Greater Caucasus mountain ridge, the reserve shelters more than 6,000 engraved images of prehistoric lifestyles, hunting, and animal and plant life, dating back between 5,000 and 40,000 years. Observe surrounding natural wonders where wild roses, figs, pears, and junipers grow among heaps of rocks and stones. Besides examining petroglyphs, you can also visit Gaval Dash--a large flat stone that produces a tambourine-like sound when struck.

  • It's really worthy to visit this site. As you will see on the map in the museum, there are not many places like this one around the world. The museum from its exterior doesn't looks like many things can be seen inside, but you will be surprised once you enter it.
  • Great view of offshore oil platforms
  • Quite an interesting place, you can climb paths, explore rock painting, visit the Museum.
