Things to do when travelling around Azerbaijan

It seems that the history of Icherishehere itself tells its secrets to tourists.

Old (Inner) City is a labyrinth of narrow streets with old limestone buildings located right in the center of Baku. The most important sights are the Shirvanshahs Palace and Maiden Tower. They are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites!

Shirvanshahs Palace is the pearl of Azerbaijan as it took centuries to build. Maiden Tower is a cylindrical construction; historians have been puzzling over it since neither its purpose, nor the date of its construction are still known. Despite this, the tower is one of the most important structures of the city.

It hosts the International Festival of Arts, while artists regularly exhibit their masterpieces against its enigmatic silhouette.

Getting “dirty” can be very useful sometimes!

Dedicate a day to a health treatment by immersing yourself in an oil bath. Yes, that’s right, with oil. This is an excellent remedy for the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, skin, and many other diseases.

We recommend such places as Chinar Hotel & Spa Naftalan. Treatments for you will be doubly enjoyable, because your eyes will be directed to the beautiful nature around. If you’re short of time but still crave a taste of the healing powers, head to the Naftalan Health Centre in the capital.
