The Land of FireLocated between the shores of the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus Mountains, the nation and former Soviet Republic, Azerbaijan is an oil-rich nation filled to the brim with outstanding nature and rich culture with centuries of traditions and flavorful cuisine. Being located along the Great Silk Road, Azerbaijan has long served as a bridge between Europe and Asia, intriguing some of the world's most brilliant minds, adventurous explorers and curious historians. With the capital city of Baku's focal point being the famous flame towers, the natural abundance of gas and oil reserves, and flares being its national symbol, Azerbaijan is aptly named 'The Land of Fire'. With an astounding combination between tradition and modernity, Azerbaijan is the ever-burning flame of the Caucusus.
