Trip Report Azerbaijan photo gallery and tourist attractions

I want to share with the community tourist information and experience of my trip in Azerbaijan I visited: Baku - Lankaran - Qobustan - Astara

Baku is a beautiful and interesting city where ancient and modern mixes, the city has grown rapidly in recent years due to the enormous wealth of extractive industries of oil and natural gas . The city is characterized by a mix of modern skyscrapers, old buildings, buildings in the Art Nouveau style while in the suburbs still resist a few ugly Soviet-style buildings; the city is spotlessly clean with beautiful public parks
