Azerbaijan Mini Guide
Tell me Why I Should Choose Azerbaijan?
Azerbaijan has tempted travellers for decades now since the fall of the USSR but it's only recently that security there has improved enough to make it a viable destination. Now, the beauty of the country which contains nine of the eleven climatic zones in the world is open to all who take an Azerbaijan hire car to help them explore. Drive along the deserted shores of the Caspian Sea or marvel at the snow capped Caucasus Mountains. The cities are spectacular too with many opulent and glitzy hotels and restaurants.
How Easy is it to Get There?
Both BA and the country's national carrier, Azerbaijan Airlines have direct flights from Heathrow to the capital Baku. Amongst the chaos of the travellers arriving there you'll be pleased you've pre-booked Azerbaijan car hire as it will take you only a few minutes to complete the paperwork before you can set off to enjoy the wonders of the country. Around the main cities, the road system is excellent and even out in the wilds you'll still find adequate roads.
What Should be on my Must See List?
You should spend time wondering at the architecture of the oil funded new buildings in the capital before taking a look at some of the country's ancient buildings, many from the time of Alexander the Great. Zoroastrianism was big here and there are plenty of temples dedicated to Zoroaster that make for good photography subjects.
The countryside is spectacular too and you'll drive through farmland that has changed little over the centuries. Make sure too that you visit the shores of the Caspian Sea, the largest inland body of water in the world.
