     Beach Rest

Spending a summer vacation on the beach - an all-time classic favourite. Over recent years, Azerbaijan has become a popular tourist destination among foreigners, not least thanks to the Caspian Sea. The mild, warm climate gives Baku residents a chance to kick off the beach season in May and swim in the warm waves of the Caspian until well into September.

If you prefer water sports and you’re no stranger to “kitesurfing”, "Blue Planet Kayt" beach located in the village of Shuraabad, Khizi district near Baku should be your next destination. This is the first kitesurfing centre in Azerbaijan where you can appreciate the strength of the Baku winds and catch a wave.

The centre also has courses to improve the skills of beginners and professionals. Classes are held both in groups and individually. You can buy or rent a kite and board, as well as all the necessary accessories. Along with this, you can visit the beach club and restaurant, famous for its delicious dishes.

 Gastronomic paradise

Tasty Azerbaijani food is one of the first things that tourists want to discover when they come to the Land of Fire. This is not surprising, considering that local food is famous all over the world for its taste and useful qualities.

Baku guests should try dolma, pilaf, levengi, and, of course, kebab.

Dolma - fresh meat and stuffing, wrapped in grape leaves - this is one of the first dishes that must definitely be tried during the visit to Azerbaijan.

Pilaf, a dish known all over the world, is served in Azerbaijan on some great holidays.

Another appetizing dish is levengi - chicken and fish stuffed with walnuts, onions, sweet and sour dried fruits.

In addition, the famous Azerbaijani shish kebab is something that no tourist should miss. A dish with fresh, juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and sweet pepper will not leave anyone indifferent.

While in Azerbaijan, tourists should try Gutabs, cooked from sugar-free flour, stuffed with meat, greens or pumpkin.

The taste of Azerbaijani sweets people cannot forget, and even more, they are trying to cook baklava and shekerbura in their country.

It should be noted that the capital will not only let you taste local dishes, but also dishes of other nationalities and countries. International franchises, authentic cafés, luxurious restaurants, open-air playgrounds, cosy wine bars and noisy pubs, along with other exciting locations will suit anyone who is ready experience local delights, by getting to know local people through their sumptuous cuisine.
