Itinerary

Discover the highlights of Baku and its surrounding areas with this exciting one-day itinerary. Start your day by visiting the historic Gosha Gala Tower in the Old City of Baku. This 12th-century tower served as a defense fortress during the medieval era and offers breathtaking views of the city.
 
Next, head to the Bibi Heybat Mosque, one of the oldest and most significant mosques in Baku, built in the 13th century and renovated many times over the years. It is a sacred site for Muslims and attracts visitors from around the globe.
 
Afterward, venture to the First Oil Wells on the outskirts of Baku. This site marks the spot where the world's first industrially drilled oil well was discovered in the mid-19th century, giving rise to Azerbaijan's booming oil industry.
 
Take a break for lunch and indulge in some mouth-watering Azerbaijani cuisine. After lunch, head to Gobustan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, located about an hour's drive from Baku. This park is home to over 6,000 Stone Age rock engravings that depict scenes of hunting, dancing, and rituals.
 
Next, visit the natural wonder of the Mud Volcanoes. These unique geological formations are caused by underground gases that force mud to the surface, forming small mud volcanoes. Azerbaijan is home to over 400 of these, making it a must-see attraction.
 
Then, proceed to the Fire Temple, located in the Absheron Peninsula. This temple holds significant religious value for Zoroastrians and is believed to have been constructed in the 17th century.
 
Lastly, explore the Burning Mountain, also located in the Absheron Peninsula. This mountain is famous for its everlasting flames caused by natural gas seeping through the ground, creating a unique and fascinating natural phenomenon.
