Azerbaijan is a very remarkable country, boasting unique history and traditions. The numerous trade routes of the Great Silk Road used to intersect the country in the old times. Azerbaijan is often called ‘the country of fires’, as rich oil and gas deposits lying close to the surface throughout the country, when kindled, used to form gigantic burning columns growing right from the ground and to impress greatly the ancient fire-worshipping tribes inhabiting the territory. Those times were commemorated in numerous temples and rock paintings.

A holiday in Azerbaijan will turn out an incredibly peasant and diverse time span, during which you will see a number of impressive historical monuments, travel to majestic mountains, walk on the quay of Baku, visit Shamakhi and Sheki, bathe in the mild sun on the shore of the Caspian Sea, contemplate the capital’s modern architecture and partake of the sweetest fruit and traditional food.
