Best spots for photos in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan offers an abundance of beautiful and awe-inspiring locations for photography. From gorgeous landmarks to stunning landscapes, Azerbaijan has something to offer every kind of photographer. In this article, we will provide an overview of some of the top spots to take photos in Azerbaijan.

The capital city of Baku is one of the best places to start your photographic journey in Azerbaijan. Baku is home to many iconic locations such as the Maiden Tower, Palace of The Shirvanshahs and The Flame Towers, all of which provide a unique backdrop for photography. The city also includes the old town, Icheri Sheher, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is filled with old, cobblestone streets, colorful buildings and interesting monuments that can make for some truly stunning images.

To get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you can head to the lush forests of Shirvan National Park. The park is home to an abundance of wildlife and offers many picturesque opportunities including beautiful lakes, stunning waterfalls, and ancient ruins.

For breathtaking mountain vistas and stunning landscapes, the Caucasus Mountains are a great option. The mountains are home to many different species of animals and plants, and are best explored on a hike or horseback ride, so that photographers can fully soak in the stunning views.

Another great area for photography is Gobustan National Park. This historic landmark is perched on cliffs, providing sweeping views of the Caspian Sea, and is also home to thousands of ancient rock carvings, many of which are thousands of years old.

Finally, for a unique look at Azerbaijan, photographers should visit the vibrant city of Sheki. Here, you can explore the medieval architecture as well as traditional handicrafts, including a 17th-century palace and colorful ancient bazaars.
