Azerbaijan Travel Information | Azerbaijan Country Information
Azerbaijan is the richest of the three states in the Caucasus region, with its oil and gas
in the Caspian Sea. Already in the 20th century oil was mined and
the many nodding donkeys around Baku still remembers their prosperity in this
period of Baku oil barons. Baku is a cosmopolitan city with a buzzing old center.
The old town is reminiscent of Turkish cities, not weird, Azerbaijan is after
all an Islamic county. As soon as you leave the city, you will enter another
world. Here you will travel between the traditional mountain villages, the
Soviet-like countryside and ancient caravan cities like Sheki, the main
attraction of the country.
