Explore the Zoroastrian past & modern times
The fascinations of the mystical Land of Fire – Azerbaijan –
are many. Here at the crossroads of tremendous empires, explore from the
Caucasus Mountains to the Caspian Sea. Visit the ancient Ateshgah Temple
(Temple of Fire Worshippers) and witness the eternal burning hill, Yanar Dag.
Take an evening walk through Baku’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, with Bronze Age burial chambers dating back 1,500 years. Get lost in the maze-like
alleys and winding streets of Baku, stopping in carpet shops or a tea house to
enjoy hot lavash bread pulled straight from a clay oven. Learn of the critical
role Azerbaijan played in establishing the Nobel brothers in the oil industry –
one of whom went on to found the Nobel Prize Foundation. Our Exeter
International Extraordinary Experience offers an exclusive tour of the Nobel
family’s home in Baku, recently restored to its former glory. Still, under the
radar, this culturally genuine south Caucasus treasure is a must-see.
