Baku

Baku, capital of Azerbaijan, lies on the western shore of the Caspian Sea and the southern side of the Apsheron Peninsula, around the wide, curving sweep of the Bay of Baku. The bay, sheltered by the islands of the Baku Archipelago, provides the best harbour of the Caspian Sea, while the Apsheron Peninsula gives protection from violent northerly winds. Baku derives its international importance from its huge oil industry. The walled old town is highly picturesque, with its maze of narrow alleys and ancient buildings, such as the Palace of the Shirvan-Shahs and the Synyk-Kala Minaret and Mosque.

Day 3, Baku

Today, you will embark on a great exploration through the Mud Volcanoes. Bubbling and belching away like witches’ cauldrons, mud volcanoes are one of nature’s more murky oddities. They’re found spattered throughout the world, but astonishingly around 300 of the earth’s estimated 700 mud volcanoes are in Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea. Capable of ejecting millions of cubic meters of hydrocarbon gasses plus mountains of mud, these geological marvels – some of them over 200 meters high – are a sight to behold. Later, we will drive to Gobustan Historical Reserve (65 km far). The reserve is well known with its perfectly preserved rock paintings - petroglyphs - a kind of artistic archive of human evolution on the Earth. They reflect the history of this region for nearly 15,000 years - since the end of the era of the Upper Paleolithic till the Middle Ages. Before the start of the tour around Gobustan we will visit the interactive museum with the same name, where with the help of special programs and multimedia touch screens we will get to know all about the flora of Gobustan. In 2007 Gobustan was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meal Included: Breakfast.
