The Caspian Sea coast is a popular tourist destination due to its warm climate. Here you can relax and unwind from the hectic pace of life all year round, as well as swim and sunbathe all the way from May to September. New modern hotels with well-kept private beaches for your comfort and pleasure have been built here during recent years. The climate of the peninsula is mainly subtropical which is why winters in Baku are always short and mild and summers long and hot. Despite the fact that Baku is located on the same latitude as Italy or Greece, rainfall is not that frequent and the average annual temperature is slightly higher.

Baku

The capital of Azerbaijan, where past and present are intricately intertwined, has always attracted tourists. Of particular interest to guests is the Old City or Icheri Sheher (Inner City) with its fortress walls and Maiden Tower.
