Sightseeing, walking, automobile, thematic excursions to interesting cities and resorts of Azerbaijan. Although tourism in Azerbaijan began to develop only in recent years, the country has already gained popularity among travelers. And not surprising – because there is everything for a good rest at any time of the year. The sunny beaches of Baku and Khudat, the dizzying slopes of the Shahdag Mountain ski resort and the many attractions in the cities and towns of Azerbaijan create all the opportunities for an exciting trip. And in Azerbaijan, you are guaranteed a sea of sunshine and delicious fruits.
A rich history, a variety of climatic zones, beautiful nature, a location on the seashore, thermal springs from under the ground – it seems that there is everything necessary for the rapid development of the tourism industry. The ancient, mysterious, “fiery” country of Azerbaijan is simply a storehouse for an inquisitive tourist. On its vast fields, mountains and mud hills scattered so many unique attractions and monuments that Europe can only exhale enviously. However, the tourism here is still in its infancy, especially outside the beautiful capital of Baku. Therefore, the best way to travel to Azerbaijan is during a group tour or with an experienced guide. To see the most ancient petroglyphs on the Gobustan plateau, enjoy indescribable pictures of champing mud volcanoes, look at Yanardag Mountain blazing with fire, or walk along the ancient streets of Absheron Gala.
Excursions in Azerbaijan will completely sweep away your idea of this country, and you will come back here more than once. However, it’s worth starting, of course, with the handsome Baku. This ancient city, which today successfully steps on the heels of its colleagues from the United Arab Emirates or Singapore, striking the contrast of modernity and antiquity. Dizzying skyscrapers are adjacent to narrow curved streets here, and noisy bazaars – with the latest shopping centers. Excursions in Baku are very different – from ordinary sightseeing to gastronomic, night or water (along the Caspian Bay).
Having enjoyed the capital of Azerbaijan, it’s time to go inland. Guides offer both one-day tours from Baku, for example, to the Gobustan plateau or to Sheki, and multi-day tours to ancient cities, Zoroastrian temples or national parks. In the latter case, tourists can only envy – after all, to visit such secluded corners of Azerbaijan means to personally enjoy the quintessence of the East, not spoiled by the almighty hand of globalization.
