About Azerbaijan (AZ)


The former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan (AZ) is situated on the western shores of the Caspian Sea, bordering Russia, Georgia, and Armenia, in extreme Eastern Europe or far Western Asia, depending on your viewpoint.

Azerbaijan is the largest of the Caucasus countries, with widely variable climate, and also with much of the country enjoying temperate weather year-round. Its terrain ranges from mountains to the north, and lowland forests everywhere else.

Despite a number of natural and cultural attractions, Azerbaijan is not considered a tourist destination by any stretch of the imagination, largely due to its political and social situation.

The country’s economy is almost entirely based on natural resource exploration and extraction, together with manufacturing and shipping. Culturally, Azerbaijan is equally defined by Russian and Turkish influences. Despite the country’s problems, the majority of its citzens enjoy a high standard of living, based at least in part on improvements to its infrastructure.
