Azerbaijan is one of the oldest human settlements in the world. The country has gone through all the stages of development and preserved many archaeological and architectural monuments that indicate the rich culture and history of this land. Ancient stone inscriptions, manuscripts, ornamented carpets coming from the depths of centuries can speak much of those who want to read them. To know Azerbaijan, to know the truths about it, it is necessary to look at this land and its people in a friendly way.
Azerbaijan is a country of ancient culture. The Oguz tribes moved here long ago and facing a stabilized, deep-rooted culture they found themselves in this land, which in turn enriched this culture with the general cultural Turkish traditions.
Famous Azerbaijani carpets embody all the colours, hues, and all the history of nature. Today they go beyond the boundaries of space like flying carpets and travel many countries far from Azerbaijan.
Many museums of the world keep the decorative art samples of Azerbaijani masters made of metal, ceramics, silk and wood.
Azerbaijan - "Land of Fire" is famous for its everlasting fire spots. There is a place called "Yanardagh " in Absheron. There are hot springs in Nakhchivan, Kalbajar, Masally, Lankaran, Babadagh and many other areas.
There is Ateshgah, which burns forever in Surakhani and never goes out. For centuries, Zoroastrians came to search for the fire from the far-flung regions of the world, the Hindu priests found it in Absheron, and created their main temple here in Surakhany Ateshgah.
