We entered Azerbaijan on the 18th of August 2017 after spending nearly one year in Georgia.

 

It was a very interesting country to explore. Azerbaijan is an ex-Soviet country with Islam as the main religion. We could also see a lot of resemblances with the Turkish culture as the people are from a Turkic ethnic background. The Azerbaijani language is very similar to Turkish and thanks to our knowledge of this language (after spending 9 months in Turkey) we could communicate with the people.

 

Our visa only allowed us to stay 30 days in Azerbaijan but during that short period of time, we've learned a lot about the country and the people. Something that we'll definitely remember is the amazing hospitality!
