Azerbaijan Tours & Tailormade HolidaysGroup Tours Tailormade Options Caucasus Tours
The 'land of fire', Azerbaijan was once home to the ancient Zoroastrian religion. The recently-developed Flame Towers of Baku are a testament to this past; these impressive modern structures tower over the medieval streets of Baku's Old Town, symbolising the striking contrast between old and new that makes Azerbaijan so special. The Old Town is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the iconic stone-carved Palace of the Shirvanshahs and the curious Maiden Tower which features on Azeri bank notes. You can also visit the ancient Ateshgah fire temple that is built on a site of natural gas and emits a constant holy fire. Head down the shores of the Caspian Sea to Gobustan National Park, home to over 6,000 ancient rock carvings which date back some 40,000 years and depict a wealth of scenes from the prehistoric ages.
