Azerbaijan Attractions & Amenities
Azerbaijan is a country straight out of ancient legends. Its historical castles, mosques, and heritage sites in the primeval settlements of Sheki, Qabala, and Quba are mythical sights to behold, even more so with the mountain ridges of Caucasus providing the hill towns valleys of forests, waterfalls, and plains. The majestic landscape extends to the coast of oil-rich Caspian Sea, where boiling mud volcanoes, cosmopolitan cities like Baku, and the perpetually ablaze Yanar Dag put the meaning behind its national nickname – the ‘Land of Fire’. Wherever your feet may take you, you’ll be sure that the Azeri hospitality will follow you through.
The tourism openness over gross domestic product in Azerbaijan has in general significantly increased over the period from 2007 to 2019. According to data from the UNWTO, tourism openness over GDP in Azerbaijan was at eight percent in 2019.
Best time to visit Azerbaijan
The best time to visit Azerbaijan is April to June and September to October, which will let you avoid the 40°C summers and sub zero winters – particularly in the mountains. You can also participate in the Novruz Bayrami celebrations each March, which mark the Persian New Year.
