Overview

Azerbaijan –Sitting on cross roads of Asia and Europe for almost two millennia, welcoming merchants and travelers from both continents as they travelled the ancient Silk Road. The capital, Baku expanded dramatically after the creation of the first oil wells in 1846 and has been an oil-rich boom town ever since. As a result, the city is now an eclectic mix of grand mansions, brutal Soviet-era architecture and gleaming new skyscrapers. However, unlike so many other oil rich nations Azerbaijan is keen to maintain its cultural heritage with the 12th Century Old Town being made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Outside the capital, Azerbaijan is a land of green valleys, soaring mountains and semi-arid desert.
