In countless places in this fascinating piece of land between the Western World and the East, natural fires are shooting up from the ground. Azerbaijan is also fascinating due to its diversity: as many as nine of the world's 13 climate zones are found in the small country on the Caspian Sea.

About Azerbaijan

For many centuries, the most diverse peoples shaped today's Azerbaijan. These Turkish, Arab, Persian or Russian traces are still clearly visible today: in architectural, culinary and cultural terms.

In the bustling capital of Baku traditions are blended with state-of-the-art glass facades and ambitious construction projects such as the Azerbaijan Tower, which, at more than one kilometer in height, will one day become the tallest building in the world. The whole country is always in a field of tension: between tradition and modernity, East and West, Russia, Persia and Europe. In hardly any other country in the world are there such large temperature differences as in Azerbaijan, which occupies nine of the world's 13 climate zones in an area not much larger than Austria's.

Azerbaijan

Capital: Baku

Crude oil is of vital importance to Azerbaijan - and has been since the 6th century BC, as records show. Even Marco Polo reported how people had skimmed off the oil that had accumulated in pits, packed them in leather sacks and brought them on camels to Arabia or India.

What many do not know: In Azerbaijan, or more precisely in Naftalan, you can even bathe in crude oil. And they say this is healthy, too. The black gold is said to be disinfecting and stimulates the metabolism.

The small country on the Caspian Sea, the largest lake in the world, offers numerous other highlights that we will offer on our tours starting in 2019. For example, the enclave of Nakhichevan, which in contrast to the Azeri heartland borders on Turkey, or the ancient city of Shamakhi, which has been inhabited since the 5th century BC.

The eclectic architecture and breathtaking natural beauty of the Caucasian region would have remained unknown to me if not for this awesome MyCaucasus travel portal.

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.

Blog about Azerbaijan

In our blog you find interesting news and stories about Azerbaijan.

Highlights of Georgia

MyCaucasus was created because we fell in love with the region and visited it over and over for many years. When we think back to the best moments on our trips in Georgia, Armenia or Azerbaijan, we do not think of luxury hotels, beaches or tourist hotspots. It is the encounters with the people and the hidden treasures of the Caucasus that have captured our hearts forever. We want to share this feeling with you.
