Explore Azerbaijan and see the highlights of the country known as the Land of Fire! Azerbaijan lies between the Caspian Sea in the east, Georgia in the north, Armenia in the west and Iran in the south.

This former Soviet republic is home to historic landmarks and sights that are bound to keep visitors enthralled. The ultimate drawing card is the landscape. Azerbaijan’s beauty includes mountains, mud volcanoes, even 'burning hillsides' and rocky boulders in the Gobustan National Park (with rock carvings that go back all the way to the stone age). To top that off, Azerbaijan also has some of the most uniquely built landmarks. One of which is the iconic Diri Baba mausoleum that appears to be floating from the surrounding hill's rock-face. The capital city of Baku boasts three skyscrapers known as the Flame Towers. They stand tall above the ancient Old City (Icheri Sheher), which dates back to 885AD.
