Good to Go

You can holiday to Azerbaijan without having to quarantine either on your arrival in the country or on your return to the UK. There are also no travel advisories in place against travel from the FCDO meaning you can book with complete peace of mind.

The capital and largest city of Azerbaijan as well as the largest city of the Caucasus region with a coastline along the Caspian Sea. The heartbeat of Baku is its old-town, or fortress, with its walls and tower of Kyz-Kalasy still standing. The walled city, Maiden’s Tower and Palace of the Shirvan-Shahs are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

This charming old town with narrow alleys, sandstone houses and ancient buildings is in direct contrast to the new modern part of the city with high rise buildings, busy streets and vast shopping centres.

You cannot miss the Flame Towers that rise above the city, take time to walk the promenade or enjoy a boatride in the park. Fountain Square is where the locals meet surrounded by shops, cafés and public art. The local food is kebabs, hummus and lots of fruit with strawberry jam in your tea.
