Review quote

"Azerbaijan by Mark Elliott (Trailblazer) is an excellent guidebook with useful maps that make exploring in and around Baku possible. It is much more detailed than the new but disappointing Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan (Lonely Planet)". The Guardian (UK) "Invaluable" The Financial Times (UK) "Recommended' The Independent on Sunday (UK) 'Very comprehensive coverage' Caspian Business News

Back cover copy

Perched beside the oil-rich Caspian Sea, compact, hospitable Azerbaijan is astounding in its scenic variety. Painted moonscape deserts, snow-capped Caucasian peaks, subtropical forests and flower-filled grasslands all lie within a few hours drive of Baku, the artistically-vibrant, cosmopolitan capital with its UNESCO-recognized walled Old City. Since the first edition in 1999 this map-packed book has become the definitive guide for visitors and residents alike. Now in its expanded and fully-updated 4th edition it s more practical than ever. Practical information Visas, getting to Azerbaijan, where to stay, where to eatSights and excursions Discover bubbling mud volcanoes, linguistically-unique stepped villages, ruined castles, a flaming hillside and fire-temple, iron-wood forests, water that catches fire, magical rocks kissed smooth by superstitious wish-seekers. On foot, by car, 4WD, bus, train or horse be among the first tourists to explore delightful Azerbaijan since Noah sailed across the country 5000 years ago, his Ark carving a great gash through Nakhchivan s Snake Mountain.190 maps Includes even more maps, illustrated with over 160 sketches and diagrams. As well as showing hotels, restaurants, bus stops etc, these maps also include landmarks at key unsigned junctions to help motorists and hikers.History, language, cultural tipsExcursions to neighbouring Georgia"
