Azerbaijan probably isn’t one of the former Soviet countries you’re thinking of visiting any time soon, but it’s definitely worth a shot. Its capital Baku has much more to offer than most tourists expect, and here’s a couple of reasons why it deserves a spot on your bucket list.
If you’re short on money, but still want to explore a new country, Azerbaijan is one of the most affordable options out there. Accommodation, transport, food, and souvenirs aren’t expensive, and this trip will be pretty easy on your wallet.
Stunning Old Town
Baku will surprise you with its stunning mix of traditional and modern architecture, but Old Town is the best place to explore its rich past and truly experience the city in its best light.
If you prefer the wonders of modern architecture, Baku also has a lot to offer. The Flame Towers are one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, and they can be seen from pretty much any spot in the city.
If you prefer spending your time in nature, you’ll find everything your heart desires only an hour away from Baku – in breathtaking Gobustan National Park.
