Azerbaijan: Dance with the Flames in the Land of Fire

Azerbaijan, often called the Land of Fire, is a fusion of antiquity and modernity. It’s a place where Zoroastrian temples coexist with futuristic skyscrapers.

The capital, Baku, showcases this blend with its UNESCO-listed Old City and the ultramodern Flame Towers. The city’s seaside promenade, the Baku Boulevard, offers a refreshing retreat.

Beyond the city, the Gobustan National Park has ancient rock carvings highlighting the country’s deep-rooted history. The mud volcanoes and the fiery mountain of Yanar Dag epitomize the nation’s moniker, offering a glimpse into its geothermal wonders.
