Modern Azerbaijan

Modern Azerbaijan is a country with a unique history that has preserved the most ancient culture and is careful about its traditions. Of course, I begin my journey with the visit to the capital of Azerbaijan, the beautiful city of Baku. Located on the shores of the Caspian Sea, from ancient times it was surrounded by ever-burning hot spots of flame. So the symbol of both the city and the whole country became fire. Yanardag, in translation it means “burning mountain”. This is a natural eternal flame burning since ancient times on a hillside near Baku.
