Destination Information for Azerbaijan
Nicknamed the ‘Land of Fire’, Azerbaijan has been keen to allow the influence of western progress, while retaining the eastern culture that gives the nation its sense of identity. The capital of Baku is one of the most rapidly growing cities in the world, but continues to contrast the new and old, with skyscrapers towering over ancient buildings. In its centre, the UNESCO-listed Old City is enclosed in a spectacular fortress wall, giving Baku a truly unique feel.
Baku is predominantly surrounded by semi-desert terrain, but further afield, wildlife is in abundance within the forests and mountains. The flora of Azerbaijan is particularly striking, adding numerous colours to the landscape and bringing it to life. This natural beauty can be found in the southern region of the country, as Hirkin National Park is essentially untouched by humans, allowing life in the area to thrive.
