Places to visit in Baku


Azerbaijan is often referred to as the “Land of Fire”. It is known that the majority of those residing in this territory before the Common Era were fire-worshippers. Since then, the country has preserved the ancient evidence of that era: cave paintings, statues of gods and ancient temples. Two of the most vivid examples of this heritage are the temple of fire-worshippers (“Ateshgah”) at Surakhani near Baku and “Yanardag”, translated as the “burning mountain”. 

You can visit also an open-air museum - Old City with Maiden Tower, Gobustan - one of the worlds largest ancient petroglyphs collection, a heritage of Zaha Hadid - Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center and so many places.
