Some tourist travel tips for Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is one of those strange mixes of east and west that simultaneously amaze and confuse you. If you haven’t been to these exotic lands yet, here are some good reasons to do so.

Azerbaijan is home to 9 of all 11 climate zones.

In addition to the large – over 350 000 sq.m, the Caspian Sea is deep – reaching over 1000 m in its deepest part. Its water is less salty than most seas, which makes it more enjoyable to swim.

Sights on the UNESCO list

Gobustan – remember this name because it was one of the first centers of human civilization here. The archeological reserve is located 60 km from Baku and includes rock drawings, tombs, Stonehenge-like cromlech, remains of settlements dating back to the Stone Age.

The old city of Baku – Icheri Sheher is also on the UNESCO list. In this part of the capital are located the Tower of the girl, the Shirvanshah palace, mosques, caravansarai remains and baths. Here are scenes from the Soviet movie “The Diamond Hand”.

Petroleum Spa Complex in Naftalan

Naphthalan is not a gas station name but a popular spa resort, just 20 km from Azerbaijan’s second largest city, Ganja. Naphthalane oil therapies are known for their beneficial properties because of their specific biological composition – they protect against infections, act as a painkiller and invigorate. The first oil ointments were created by a German concessionaire, who began exporting them to Germany as early as 1886. Today, more than 70 diseases are being treated in the resort’s oil baths.

Mud volcanoes

Azerbaijan ranks first in the world in the number of mud volcanoes. 350 of all 800 mud volcanoes in the world are located in the country. Thousands of tourists come to Azerbaijan precisely because of this attraction. Mud volcanoes erupt with rumbling and gas, and fiery tongues can reach up to 1000 m (Garasu volcano). In addition to resembling a landscape from Mars, these volcanoes, it turns out, really have something to do with the Red Planet. According to NASA researchers, their composition is similar to the planes of our neighboring planet.

Sheki City and the Silk Road

Excavations show that Sheki is one of the oldest cities in the Caucasus – more than 2500 years old. Over the last few centuries, Sheki has become famous all over the world for her silk and fine embroidery. Because of the lively trade, many caravansarai were built where the weary travelers could rest. Two of them have been preserved to this day – the Upper and the Lower, from the 18th century. Take a look at the impressive Sheki Khan’s Palace, for which no nail was used.
