Pull up a chair at the local café on the Promenade in Baku, and soak up the ancient breathtaking beauty of the capital’s Old Town district. Over the rooftops, beyond the Maiden Tower and city palace, the rising sun glints off the sea, invigorating you for the day’s adventure. Will you spend the day in the mountains or on the beach? Or, do you prefer the luxurious petroleum oil baths of Naftalan? Azerbaijan has it all! When the café waiter comes to your table, be sure to say Salam!
