Nakhchivan, an autonomous Azerbaijani republic, remains a region of breathtaking landscapes, quaint villages, and a cuisine distinct from the rest of the country.
Get out of town with these interesting Nakhchivan side-trips: Shahbuz National Reserve (in Shahbuz) and Juma Mosque (in Ordubad). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Nakhchivan Khans' Palace and make a trip to Mausoleum of Momine Khatun.

Baku to Nakhchivan is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also take a bus. Traveling from Baku in February, plan for little chillier nights in Nakhchivan, with lows around -4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Guba.
