Ancient wonders

Traditional Azerbaijan is wonderfully preserved throughout the country, but even more so in Baku’s ancient Old City – with examples dating back as far as the 7th century.

Protected by its UNESCO World Heritage status, you can walk within its sandstone walls and visit the likes of the Maiden Tower and the Palace of the Shirvanshahs. Outside of Baku, take the time to visit Sheki, a 2,500-year-old town nestled at the foot of the southern Greater Caucasus Mountain.

A modern touch

Azerbaijan’s thriving oil industry is reflected in the grandeur of its modern-day architecture. Since the first oil boom in the 1870s, right up to the present day, innovative structures keep popping up all over Azerbaijan, especially around Baku.

Head here to see the soaring Flame Towers, the remarkable Heydar Aliyev cultural centre and the unique Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum – all impressive architectural feats.

Walk among gigantic rocks etched with prehistoric petroglyphs at the Gobustan National Park, not far from Baku. Visit Shirvan National Park to explore sand dunes and spot big cats, gazelles and hundreds of species of exotic birds.

If you’re visiting Gabala, then take a trip to the Yeddi Gozel Waterfall to admire the tranquil surroundings. Of course, you can’t travel to Azerbaijan without experiencing incredible mud volcanoes in action – the country boasts the most in the entire world.
