Essential Information

Flights to Baku, Azerbaijan


Located on the coast of the Caspian Sea on the hot, semi-desert landscape of the Absheron peninsula, Baku is the largest and most cosmopolitan city in the Caucasus. It is divided into three main areas: the old town called Icheri Sheher, the Soviet-built districts and the modern city. Icheri Sheher is the ancient walled city of Baku with narrow streets, old mansions and myriad mosques; walking here gives you the feel of the city as it was many years ago. Or you can go for a stroll along the shore of the Caspian Sea or through the modern districts where you will find plenty of cafés and restaurants. The oil boom of the 20th century that re-launched Azerbaijan’s economy has resulted in Baku’s astonishing revival. Now it is a place where the East and West meet and the historic and the modern merge seamlessly.
