Located in the Caucasus on the shores of the Caspian Sea, the country of Azerbaijan sits at the nexus of several ancient kingdoms. Its heritage has been influenced by Persian, Arab, Ottoman, and Russian colonial empires. Having regained its independence in 1991, Azerbaijan is re-opening itself to the world. Neither European nor Asian, the country is mixing the glitz and glamour brought on by a booming energy industry with UNESCO listed historical sites, timeless villages, and a lush countryside. As the country continues to emerge from its Soviet-era chrysalis, visitors will find many cheap hotel deals in Azerbaijan.
The capital of Baku has numerous historical monuments, museums, and structures of architectural significance. The ancient Walled City contains the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, one of the country's architectural gems, and the Maiden Tower, Azerbaijan's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors who take advantage of a cheap Azerbaijan hotel deal find museums dedicated to art, culture, and natural history. Another top attraction for guests of Azerbaijan hotels is the Ateshgah Fire Temple built in the 17th and 18th centuries atop a natural gas pocket. The Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape contains thousands of ancient petroglyphs dating back more than 4,000 years. Other historical monuments, museums, and cultural sites are spread throughout the cities and towns of Azerbaijan, including oil fields that were the backdrop for a scene in the James Bond movie, "The World is Not Enough."
The countryside, ranging from coastal plains to the forested hills and mountain peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, boasts 11 of the world's major ecological zones as well as numerous national parks. Tourists who book rooms in hotels in Azerbaijan discover a rich biodiversity in the Zangezur National Park, which is home to the rare Anatolian leopard. They can also explore the forested slopes of the Hirkan and Altyaghach National Parks as well as the internationally important migratory bird nesting areas of the Ag-Gel National Park.
