The City of Eternal Flames, the City of Winds

A truly contemporary city criss-crossed by history, Baku offers everything from the modern elegance of the Flame Towers to the medieval UNESCO-listed Old City at its core.
Change things up with these side-trips from Baku: Yeddi Gumbaz Mausoleum (in Shamakhi), Mardakan Fortress (in Mardakan) and Gobustan (Gobustan State Reserve & Diri Baba Mausoleum). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, explore the striking landscape at Yanardag, explore the ancient world of Ateshgah Fire Temple, and examine the collection at Heydar Aliyev Center.

Land of Fire
A holiday in Azerbaijan allows intrepid travelers to discover a history-steeped country sitting at the crossroads of Southeastern Europe and Southwest Asia, an area once controlled by a succession of ancient empires. With its dual Eurasian character, Azerbaijan remains a highly intriguing destination, with tourism one of the top contributors to the country's booming economy. Many begin their tour of Azerbaijan in World Heritage-listed Baku, a cosmopolitan city boasting innovative architecture and a well-preserved historic core. A short drive out of this thriving capital, you can explore timeless villages surrounded by thick orchards and flanked by the majestic Caucasus Mountains.
