Overview

Gobustan – a mountainous area located 55 km far from Baku is a territory where rock carvings of ancient people were discovered.

The first archeological investigation of Gobustan petroglyphs started in early 1939.

The most ancient drawings refer to the Mesolithic period, but it is assumed that life existed here even before.

Before the main excursion, tourists will visit the eponymous interactive museum, where they will be able to get information about the history, flora and fauna of Gobustan by special multimedia and touch screen devices.

Further tourists will take a trip to mud volcanoes, which are also located near Gobustan.

According to the number of active mud volcanoes, Azerbaijan ranks first in the world (45%).

These volcanoes present a form of cone-shaped mud hill with crater.

On the way back, tourists will also have an opportunity to inspect Bibi – Heybat Mosque.

The mosque was built in 1267-1300.

It was a rare construction, both with its beauty and history of creation.

 

Itinerary: Departure to Gobustan, visits to the interactive indoor museum and inspection of rock carvings, trip to mud volcanoes, visit to the modern Bibi-Heybat mosque, return.
