Voice of Travelers to Azerbaijan
Nice Trip in Azerbaijan
I bought my ticket from Aeroflot Airlines and the flight and services on board were fantastic. I visited many attractions in Azerbaijan including the Azerbaijan 12th century maiden tower, Azerbaijan Carpet Museum displaying carpets and rug items, National Museum of History of Azerbaijan, National Art Museum of Azerbaijan, Hirkan National Park, and Fountains Square which is a public square in downtown Baku.
Azerbaijan has many great attractions including the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, the Azerbaijan Maiden Tower which is one of the most dominant architectural pieces, the Atashgah Fire Temple or the Fire Temple of Baku Azerbaijan, and hamams or public baths.
