An hour’s ride from Baku, we enter the open-air museum that is Gobustan, where we’ll get to see over 6000 “petroglyphs”. These paintings on rocks, boulders, and cave walls show images of people and animals, describing what life was like from as early as the Upper Palaeolithic to as late as the Middle Ages. We’ll then head to the Gobustan State Historical-Artistic Museum, equipped with innovative technology, interactive displays and touch screens with multimedia programs, educational games and 3D videos. Afterwards, we’ll have the opportunity to witness one of the world’s most fascinating natural displays, as we visit Gobustan’s famous burbling mud volcanoes. And at the end of the tour, we’ll stop by one of Azerbaijan’s major monuments of Islamic architecture, the Bibi-Heybat Mosque. Built in the 13th century, this mosque was destroyed by the Bolsheviks in 1936 and recently rebuilt to welcome pilgrims and tourists alike.
