Shaki, one of the must see places of Azerbaijan

Caucasus is a unique region situated between Europe and Asia, which includes in itself several countries with various cultures, histories, arts and religions. The country Azerbaijan, in a sense, is one of the luckiest countries, to be situated in Caucasus. Because this is where East and West meets, where the cultures are mixed, this is where there is a perfect climate for the most fruits, and vegetables. And this country appears to be my motherland. Here in Azerbaijan, there are lots of interesting things to be seen, each city of the country is beautiful differently, for its cultural monuments, art, and history. So I would like, to begin with, the city of Shaki, a small city in the northwest part of the country.

Baku – a city with a rich history and kind people

Azerbaijan’s capital was on my list of places to visit for a long time. “Delicious tea (hand on heart, best tea I have ever had), kind people and narrow stone paved streets of Old Town” – is what stuck in my heart and mind the most vividly. The few days spent in Baku visiting friends were time well-spent.
