Azerbaijan Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 48%, Azerbaijan represents one of the most progressive of all the former Soviet states, where the ideals of Democracy seem to have taken on a firmer hold than it has in many of its neighboring states. This has been a fantastic outcome for PlanetHoppers!, as it provides easy access to the country's amazing range of cultural, natural, and seaside attractions that compare with those you will find in other regions of the world. One of the country's most popular holiday spots is the Caspian Sea coast, which offers a vast range of options for a comfortable and exciting beach holiday. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the network of mud volcanos found at Gobustan State Reserve. This reserve contains approximately 70% of the world's mud volcanos and provides an interesting, if somewhat smelly, experience. But no trip to Azerbaijan could be called complete without a visit to the historic city of Baku. This is the country's capital and the place you go to experience the urban side of Azerbaijan. With a range of historical and cultural sites such as the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, the Maiden Tower, and Martyr's Lane, this is one of the truly classic cities of the region that will probably make you wish that you had budgeted more time to fully explore. PlanetHop! predicts that Azerbaijan will one day soon become one of the world's "hippest" new travel destinations. So if you want to get there before the rush, start planning you trip now!
