HUNTING IN AZERBAIJAN
A trip to Azerbaijan is hunting in the mountains of the Caucasus for species typical of mountain and alpine regions, i.e. chamois, bears and, above all, the Dagestani Tur. Azerbaijan is a country where the Tur population is one of the largest in the world. Mountain hunting is a real “male adventure”. Horseback expedition to the high parts of the mountains, accommodation in camps or tents, trapper’s food cooked on fire and the approach of animals surrounded by mountain peaks. This is a real picture of the Azerbaijani hunting.
When You come to Azerbaijan, everyone will tell You, that You should visit Baku – the capital of the country. The city is full of various attractions and wonderful monuments, which are combination of centuries-old tradition and modernity. You can see it while walking around the old town, where from thousand-year-old palaces that smoothly move to futuristic buildings, such as the Heydar Aliyev Center – the most often photographed building in the country. For those who want to explore the depths of the country, we recommend a trip to the Caucasus Mountains, enriched with beautiful, small temples and shepherds’ huts. Another city worth seeing is Sheki, where the pearl of that place is the Palace of the Shekhans. The interiors of the 17th-century palace are filled with paintings and colorful stained glass, through which colorful, picturesque light falls into the interior on sunny days. The view is stunning.
