Top Highlights

The Mud Volcano

Azerbaijan is home to one of the world's few mud volcanoes, known as the "Lokbatan Mud Volcano." What makes it truly remarkable is its ability to "erupt" with mud instead of lava, creating a surreal landscape where bubbling mud pools and miniature cones constantly reshape the terrain. This natural wonder not only fascinates geologists but also attracts visitors seeking an otherworldly experience unlike any other.

A savory Pancake

Azerbaijan boasts a distinctive culinary tradition that combines flavors from the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. One unique delicacy is "Kutab," a savory pancake stuffed with herbs, meat, or cheese, then griddled to perfection. What sets it apart is the ritual of slathering it with melted butter before consumption, adding a luxurious richness that tantalizes taste buds and makes it a must-try for food enthusiasts exploring Azerbaijani cuisine.

Weather

In Azerbaijan, the climate is slightly continental, with relatively cold winters and hot summers; it is also arid in most of the low-lying areas, while it is colder and generally rainier in the mountains. The coast on the Caspian Sea is semi-arid in the northern part and arid in the center (see Baku), while it is rainy in the southernmost stretch, which is therefore an exception to the rule that the plains of Azerbaijan are arid.
