Nakhchivan — 2 nights

Nakhchivan, an autonomous Azerbaijani republic, remains a region of breathtaking landscapes, quaint villages, and a cuisine distinct from the rest of the country.
Mausoleum of Momine Khatun and Noah’s Mausoleum will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Alinja Castle and Nakhchivan Khans' Palace. Step out of Nakhchivan with an excursion to Shahbuz National Reserve in Shahbuz--about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Ashab-i Kehf and get engrossed in the history at Open Air Museum.

The City of Eternal Flames, the City of Winds

Here are some ideas for day two: take in panoramic vistas at Flame Towers, make a trip to Baku Boulevard, and then make a trip to Fountains Square.
