Baku

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Gobustan State Reserve and Dreamland Golf Club. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Baku: Mud Volcanoes (in Gobustan) and Masazir Lake (in Masazir). There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Baku Boulevard, stroll the grounds of Alley of Martyrs, take a stroll through Little Venice, and explore the striking landscape at Yanardag.

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.
