A Z E R B A I J A N

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 6 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "The Soviet Wasteland"
  • Eagle Eye: A bizarre place - certainly worth seeing - and you can't help but to hate what the Soviets have done~! Azerbaijan drifts in oil - did you know that?
  • Hot Spots: Baku, Sumqayit and Qobustan - dont miss the cold bubbling mud pools aroundQobustan (if you can find them!). Head out to the mountains at Xinaliq, Seki and Lahic and surrounding areas.
  • The Low-down: Get out of Baku and into the mountains for a surreal experience (which I missed)
