  • 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.

  • 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.
  • This national park of Azerbaijan reminds me our roots, our past and I can not find words how to describe this place, that after all these years petroglyphs are here.
  • This is a uniqe place, above the Caspien See with the atmosphere of 20.000 years. After a small but very modern museum you csn climb directly to the hills here the ancients pictures are. It is cool...
  • unexpected interesting place worth an hour . standard not equal to other similar sites in the world but... considering where you are.. is a nice surprise
  • It's miracle, because you really understand that it was more than 100000 years ago
