Azerbaijan is a country in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west and Iran to the south.
Azerbaijan has been my favorite country on my Caucasus trip a while back. The people have been incredibly welcoming. The mountain landscapes are just breathtaking and some sites like the mud volcanoes lilterally look like out of this world. The contrast from mountain villages that feel like time traveling to a fancy bling bling city like Baku could not be any bigger.
However, see for yourself and enjoy this ride through this amazing country in only 3 minute.
Shooting locations: Baku, Mud Volcanoes in Qobustan, Khinalig (Xınalıq) and Sheki.
