  • Azerbaijan is a former Soviet republic on the Caspian Sea between Russia and Iran and is bordered to the west by Georgia and Armenia. Baku is the largest city in the Caucasus and the capital of Azerbaijan. Surrounded by semidesert on the oil-rich Caspian Sea this cosmopolitan capital rings its Unesco-listed ancient core with mushrooming new skyscrapers. I spent a few days in the city early this year and I really enjoyed my time. Of particular interest of Baku is Old City, enclosed within the fortress walls, or Inner City. This open-air museum, together with famous Maiden Tower located here is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Enjoy my new gallery!
