Situated in Eurasia, Azerbaijan is an exotic country rich in history and untouched nature. Its mixed Turkish, Persian and Soviet influences are reflected in the country’s culture, architecture, food and people.
Rich historical background and landscapes
Moreoever, this country is not as visited as other exotic destinations, so if you are planning to take a tour to Azerbaijan, here are some reasons why you should definitely do that.
The Caucasus mountain ranges are what makes this country worth visiting regardless of the season. Apart from breathtaking sights, you will also get to discover frozen lakes and waterfalls, if you are adventurous enough to go hiking and trekking.
If you don’t want to hike alone, you can find travel groups online or at your destination. If your visit takes place during winter and you are passionate about skiing, Azerbaijan offers spectacular yet affordable ski resorts.
The capital city, Baku, is another place worth visiting for its old buildings, heritage sites and a hillside with continuously burning natural gas. You can also visit remote villages, meet the locals and even find accommodation in one of the rooms in their houses.
Don’t miss the opportunity to try their rich cuisine with authentic dishes such as kebab, piti, dolma or the dessert called pakhlava made from dough filled with honey and nuts.
Apart from being exotic, Azerbaijan is also affordable, which makes a great option for people who want to experience new things and enjoy different cultures in places that are not crowded with tourists yet.
