- Two Way
Baku, the cosmopolitan capital of Azerbaijan, is situated on the shores of the Caspian Sea. It is a futuristic city that combines both traditional architecture and modern styles. The UNESCO listed, walled Old City (İçəri Şəhər) lies at the core of Baku. You can start exploring the city from Freedom Square, then head to the Martyrs’ Alley memorial, "Shyahidlyar Hiyabany” and climb up the Maiden Tower while you read about the legends associated with it. For a panoramic view of the city, hike to the top of Mountain Park. When you get back, don’t forget to visit the stone caravanserais which have been converted into atmospheric restaurants. For the shopaholics among you, Nizami Street is just perfect. Baku also has a great nightlife with live music venues and great food to help you wrap up an exciting day. Azerbaijan is the Pearl of the Caucasus, a land of contrasts and contradictions. It is a nation of unmatched culture, centuries of history with unique traditions and fine cuisine (especially lamb). Perched on the crossroads of Asia, Europe and the Middle East, it was a part of the Ancient Silk Route and has been referenced by writers as a land where geopolitical, economic and cultural interests of the East and West blend together. It is also known as the sacred Land of Fire and was once home to fire worshippers. They built the temple of fire-worshippers, “Ateshgah” at Surakhani. The “Yanardag”, (Burning Mountain) whose fire has never been extiniguished, is also a popular attraction.

Ans: Due to occupation by Armenia of the territory of NagornoKarabakh and its adjacent areas, it is temporarily impossible to visit the said area. Persons who visit Karabakh by entering from the territory of Armenia are violating the international law along with the legislation of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
Ans: The Republic of Azerbaijan remains to be one of the few countries with the lowest level of crime. The street crime here is practically non-existent, and walking till the dawn is a common practice. However, it would be reasonable to take the relevant precautions, which are natural upon a visit to any country you are travelling to for the first time or any large city of the world.
Ans: A vacation in Azerbaijan would be nice and relevant all-year round. In the summer, you will be able to enjoy the beaches of the Caspian see, a walk outside with fresh air and nature, a wide range of fruits and vegetables. During the winter, it would be best to visit the comfortable mountain ski resorts of Shahdag and Tufandag.
