Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan is a city steeped in both modern and ancient history. Nothing shows this more than its fascinating architecture. From the labyrinth like UNESCO heritage old city still protected by old the fortress walls to its tree lined and boutique filled boulevards where you feel more like you are in the heart of Paris than in the heart of the Caucasus region, not to mention the outstanding modern architecture of the omnipresent Flame Towers, Baku really is a beautiful city. Surrounded by desert but a mere 3 hour drive from some fantastic skiing resorts, Baku is a fantastic destination for adventure lovers looking to work in a city and country off the beaten track but one that is fast becoming a popular destination for foreign travellers.
