Want to know where to eat in Baku? I'd recommend dining at the Mugam Club located in the Icheri Sheher (the Old City). In this former canvansarai you can sample tasty 'national' dishes such plov and shaslik whilst watching traditional Azeri dancers and singers.

Choose from our selection of holidays to Azerbaijan and feel like a pioneer as you explore one of the least visited former Soviet republics. The contrast between cosmopolitan Baku and the rest of the country is startling.

Baku is an oil-boom city where sleek cars glide past gleaming skyscrapers, mansions built by oil magnates, Soviet-era architecture and the beautifully preserved walled old city. Elsewhere the pace of life slows dramatically in a country dominated by the Caspian Sea and Caucasus Mountains where fortresses are hidden in dense forests.

We don’t currently have an example holiday or tour in this area, but please do ring us on or email and we can tell you more about your options.
