Azerbaijan is a South Caucasian country to watch. From the ‘burning mountain‘ of Yanar Dag to the mud volcanoes & petroglyphs of Gobustan, to the beaches of Absheron Peninsula, this ‘Land of Fire‘ offers a dramatic mix of landscapes. Poised at the crossroads of Europe & Asia. It’s people, culture & food are a captivating blend of East meets West. Capital Baku – cobbled streets, 12th-century fortresses, minarets of Old City sit side by side with fiercely modern architecture of Flame Towers & Zaha Hadid’s Heydar Aliyev Centre, reflecting the city’s enormous growth since oil-drilling began in the 19th century.
