Neither Europe nor Asia, Azerbaijan is an incredible tangle of contradictions and contrasts. Starting from 1960s the capital city Baku attracted extensive tourism ( more from Soviet Republics and Eastern European countries), as it includes hundreds of historical and cultural places to visit. Authentic wines, high-quality silk, gold ware and many other souvenirs will always bring only good memories back about this unique country.
