Day Trip Baku Baku City, Аzerbaijan

Description

Gobustan 

  • The cultural landscape of the Gobustan stone art encompasses three regions of the plateau of rocky boulders rising from the semi-desert of Central Azerbaijan, with an outstanding collection of more than 6,000 engravings that attest to the 40,000-year-old rock art. The site also presents the remains of inhabited caves, settlements and burial places, which reflects the intensive use by the people of the inhabitants of the area during the wet period that followed the last glacial period, from the Upper Paleolithic to the Middle Ages. The 537 hectare site is part of a larger protected Gobustan reservation

Mud Volcanoes

  • Azerbaijan is the epicenter of mud volcanoes in the world - 350 out of 800 mud volcanoes exist on the Earth! According to the number of mud volcanoes, Azerbaijan ranks first in the world - it accounts for almost half of all mud volcanoes of the Earth. Mud volcanoes are found not only on land but also on the water territory of the country - about 150 mud volcanoes are found in the Caspian Sea. Mud volcanoes erupt lava, mud and liquid that are used as raw materials for the chemical and construction industries, as well as for pharmacology. Volcanoes are active all year round. The 23 most interesting mud volcanoes received the status of the National Park and are under protection.

The Fire Temple

  • The Ateshgah fire temple is located 30 kilometers from the center of Baku, on the south-eastern outskirts of the Surakhani settlement of Absheron peninsula. The present Ateshgyah was built in the XVII-XVIII centuries on the site of "eternal", unquenchable fires - burning natural gas exits. It was built by the Hindu community that lived in Baku, most of whose members came from Northern India and belonged to the Sikh caste. From very remote times, Baku was noted in the sources as a place where unquenchable lights were burning. In Surahani was the sanctuary of Zoroastrians, fire worshipers, who came here to worship the sacred fire. The worship of fire in Surakhani resumed after the XV century in view of the development of economic and cultural ties with India. In the XVII century, sources note pilgrims of the Hindus who arrived in Baku to worship fire. In the beginning of the XIX century the temple already had the kind in which it came down to us. Built in local architectural traditions, Ateshgyah combines the features of ancient fire altars. Ateshgah, as a place of worship, existed until 1883, when the last Indian, left alone, left for India. In 1964 Ateshgyah was declared a historical monument.

Burning Mountain

  • Azerbaijan has been known since time immemorial as the Land of Lights, and this is not for the sake of blithe words. At the whim of nature, the land of this Caucasian country, located on the picturesque coast of the Caspian Sea, abounds in underground sources of oil and gas, which are being tried to break out. There is so much natural gas in the depths of Azerbaijan that it continually seeps to the surface. In a number of places, accidentally or intentionally thrown a match, a torch - any spark, can lead to the ignition of gas, which does not go out until it exhausts itself to the end. In older times, Azerbaijan was a country of fire worshipers, followers of Zoroastrian cults. One of the most famous and popular among tourists places of "eternal flame" in Azerbaijan is Mount Yanardag. However, it is rather a hill than a mountain, on the slope of which since ancient times natural gas is burning.

Center of Heydar Aliyev (do not enter inside, photo stop)

  • The Heydar Aliyev Center is a cultural center built on Heydar Aliyev Avenue in the capital of Azerbaijan, in the city of Baku. It is a complex structure, which includes an auditorium (congress center), a museum, exhibition halls, administrative offices. The project of the center was developed in 2007 by the architect Zaha Hadid. The cultural center of Heydar Aliyev is considered one of the symbols of modern Baku. Heydar Aliyev's center was opened on May 10, 2012. If you look from above, it is a painting of Heydar Aliyev. In 2014 it was recognized as the best in the world building - the 2014 Design of the Year award. The building area is 57.519 m². In the project of the building of the cultural center, there were practically no straight lines. The building itself in form represents a wave-like aspiration and a smooth merger with the earth. Such a structure personifies not only the postmodern style of architecture, but also duration and infinity. The lines on the building symbolize the connection between the past and the future. The white color of the building symbolizes a bright future and is used to highlight the special elements present here. Thanks to the white color, the light beams move along the surface of the building and emphasize the prominent parts of the building
