Azerbaijan, the Pearl of the Caucasus
Azerbaijan, the Pearl of the Caucasus, a land where eastern colors combine magnificently with western progress. It is a country of unique nature, unmatched culture, centuries of history with its customs and traditions and fine cuisine; a place which will satisfy the expectations of the most sophisticated gastronomists, and finally, it is the country of Caucasian hospitality and friendliness. With its huge tourism potential from the north, the shadow of the majestic Caucasus Mountains to the east, the Caspian Sea shoreline, Azerbaijan is an incomparable location for lovers of truly authentic experiences. The capital of Azerbaijan is Baku – the city of an exceptional combination of antiquity and novelty. Being a compact, sunny and maritime city Baku has a very cozy and welcoming atmosphere: "burning mountain" of Yanar Dag, the ancient Zoroastrian Ateshgah temple, mud volcanoes, Gobustan petroglyphs, UNESCO World Heritage listed Old City. Driving through the city, it’s almost impossible to miss the spectacular Heydar Aliyev Centre designed by Zaha Hadid, or iconic Flame Towers.
Perfectly connected to the world with up to more than 40 direct flights to various destinations and over 20 airlines operating in the country, Baku enjoys all the mystique of an ancient Silk Road entrepôt, but it’s also a well-organized modern-day transport hub that dominates the eastern Caucasus region.
