Azerbaijan is a little nation with a lot of fun spots. On the Caspian Sea, it provides visitors with an enticing mix of beach fun, gorgeous cities, unspoiled wildlife, exceptional historical monuments, and some of the world’s most amazing national parks.

From urban to rural areas, Azerbaijan is one of the fascinating countries on earth. It has burning hillsides, mud volcanoes, ancient fire-worshiping temples, and buildings twisted to resemble roaring flames. This former Soviet Republic, in contrast to neighboring Georgia and Armenia, is situated beneath the same Caucasus mountains yet feels like another planet.



Here are a few reasons to visit this Caucasian country that has received much attention.

  • Mud Volcanoes; Along the Absheron Peninsula, more than one-third of all mud volcanoes in the globe. Technically known as sedimentary volcanoes, mud volcanoes erupt mud plumes when underground gas pockets are pressurized and forced to the surface. At 700 meters, Turaghai and Boyuk Khanizadagh in Azerbaijan are among the tallest mountains in the world (2297 feet). The sides gradually accumulate due to the volcanoes’ propensity to bubble away slowly.


  • Mountain Villages; Northern Azerbaijan and Georgia are home to several historical and cultural settlements due to the Caucasus Mountains. The northeastern city of Quba is popular among tourists. Laza, Xinaliq, and Buduq villages nearby are fascinating places to visit if you want to learn about a nearly extinct civilization. The East Caucasus Mountain Jews live in this area as well. It is advised to go on a tour if possible.


  • The historical, traditional, and modern; Azerbaijan’s architecture is varied. From the contemporary Flame Towers and lavish House of Government in Baku to the rare medieval palaces and shrines. The Walled City of Baku has traditional Islamic and medieval Azerbaijani architectural characteristics. The first oil boom in Baku in the 19th century drew Europeans, who built the Old City in a baroque and gothic style. You’ll also encounter the unending residential buildings typical of the 20th century, just like in other former socialist countries like those in Eastern Europe and the Balkans.



The traditions and a fusion of Turkic, Iranian, and Russian people can be seen in Azerbaijani culture. The primary facets of Azerbaijani culture are music, literature, architecture, folk dances, Novruz Bayram, and cuisine. In Azerbaijan, national customs are still upheld and observed. The major cultural hub in Azerbaijan is Baku, the country’s capital. One of the most beautiful cities in the world is thought to be Baku. The first opera was performed, the first Azerbaijani newspaper was published, and the country’s first library was established in Baku. The major industrial hub in Azerbaijan is located in Baku.



Azerbaijan does not get as cold as one might anticipate, even though many of us connect it with Russia. Even though the Caucasus Mountains have snowfall in the winter and experience temperatures as low as -20°C, they also shield the rest of the nation from true Arctic conditions. Similarly, the Caspian Sea moderates summer, though temperatures can reach 40°C. Therefore, you can visit Azerbaijan for trekking and culture whenever you want. When the snow melts, the mountains burst into a wildflower frenzy, and Novruz Bayrami, the biggest holiday of the year, arrives. In addition, Persian New Year is celebrated.
