the Prince of the Caspian -Baku

Two days gives us just enough time to catch the main highlights

Day 1

Yanar Dag (Half day)

The Burning Mountain is located 30 kilometers from the center of Baku. The word Yanar in Azeri means “burning”, and Dagh means “mountain”

Gobustan & Mud Volcanos Tour (Half day) Gobustan reflect the history of Baku for nearly 15,000 years. It is well known with its perfectly preserved rock paintings-petroglyphs –a kind of artistic “archive” of human evolution on the Earth. At Gobustan you will have a chance to visit the Mud Volcanoes also known as sedimentary volcanoes or gas-oil volcanoes; they erupt powerfully and hurl flames to great heights. Mud Volcanoes also exit on the floor of the sea and alter the topography and shape of the coastline and even trigger earthquakes.

National Carpet Museum

This is must-visit. Designed by Australian architect Franz Janz to look like a rolled-up carpet, it is an exhibition space and a research centre- housing carpets from the 17th to the 20th centuries
