Azerbaijan is bounded by the Caspian Sea (largest lake in the world) and Caucasus Mountains, which span Asia and Europe. Aptly nicknamed as the “Land of FIRE “ because Azer means fire and it’s capital Baku means wind.
The historical significance of fire runs deep in the veins of Azerbaijan culture. Flames are the national symbol. Continuous flames blazing by the hillside in Yanar Dag (burning mountain), Zoroastrian Ateshgah Fire Temple, Azerbaijan’s state emblem: a red flame as the centrepiece and Baku city’s focal point, the Flame Towers, dominating the skyline all denote a strong connection to fire.
The burning mountain (Yanar Dag) is situated in rural Baku suburb and is both awe-inspiring and surreal. A 10 metre-horizontal strip (33 feet) across the scorched mountain continuously burns regardless of the sub-zero winter temperatures or occasional torrential downpour. The reason behind is the ignited natural gas that leaks from underground reserves and burns.
Country is also home to nearly a third of the world's mud volcano's. Azerbaijan features a messy, bubbling, and sometimes explosive landscape. Gobustan is a mountainous place in the southeast of the Major Caucasian ridge located 60 km from Baku. It shows the signs of primitive people who left behind numerous rock drawings - Petroglyphs.

While this may look like Mars, it’s actually Azerbaijan: the former Soviet state is also known as the mud volcano capital of the world. There are more than 400 mud volcanoes that span the oil-rich country and many are ripe for bathing — the volcanic clay is said to help treat various skin conditions. (📸: Maureen O’Hare/CNN)
