The land of fire

Best Time To Visit

Lowland Azerbaijan is especially lovely from April to June as showers interspersed by clear skies enliven bright-green, flower-dappled fields.

October is very pleasant in Baku.

Summer gets oppressively hot and humid in low-lying areas but late July is the best trekking season in the higher mountains
