Gobustan

Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape (UNESCO Heritage) covers three areas of a plateau of rocky boulders rising out of the semi-desert of central Azerbaijan, with an outstanding collection of more than 6,000 rock engravings bearing testimony to 40,000 years of rock art.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Thu): get a new perspective on nature at Gobustan State Reserve. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Mud Volcanoes and then steep yourself in history at Diri Baba Mausoleum.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Gobustan trip simple and quick.
