Nakhchivan
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: Juma Mosque (in Ordubad) and Shahbuz National Reserve (in Shahbuz). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Palace of Nakhchivan Khans and make a trip to Momine Khatun Mausoleum.

For ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Nakhchivan trip planner.

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 °C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Guba.
