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.
Get outdoors at Gobustan State Reserve and Yanardag. Appreciate the collections at Heydar Aliyev Center and Museum of Miniature Books. Take a break from Baku with a short trip to Mud Volcanoes in Gobustan, about 1h 25 min away. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, don't miss a visit to Fountains Square, enjoy breathtaking views from Flame Towers, and stroll the grounds of Alley of Martyrs.

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.
