by Sino Tour adventure tourism and outdoor activities in Azerba

If your lust to wander has not yet brought you to Azerbaijan, you surely need more reasons than most conventional ones to visit this country. Apart from being naturally beautiful and archeologically interesting, this place has some strange yet astounding things that every traveller must know of. Trust us after we are done, you will be longing for a Visa to Azerbaijan.

1. Crochet it up

Most beauty contests would not go to an extent like Azerhi’s do. The Seven Beauties competition apparently involves crocheting stockings as a part of traditional fashion. The girl who crochets the best quality stockings in the shortest time period is announced as the winner. 

2. The wolf Man

While visiting Sheiki Khan’s palace, a man named Cumay might come across your way. He sits next to an undisclosed object covered with curtains. A donation will reveal the stuffed head and bright eyes of a wolf. 

3. The stilt town

NeftDashlar or the oil rocks is the largest constructed town on stilts at the Caspian Sea, It was built after 1947.

4. Tea Tea Everywhere

Literally, you can find tea tootlers everywhere around. “Drinking” is more welcome than a crime here. Tea is served in pear shaped glasses and consumed through lumps of sugar or jam held in mouth. 

5. Oiliness 

Oil has brought immense fame and money to Azerbaijan. The Nobel family of Norway, responsible for creating the much applauded Nobel Prizes, acquired most of their wealth form the oil here somewhere around the 19th century. 

6. Burning hill

One of the rarest natural wonder is this mountain which keeps burning all around the year. It has been burning over 100 years now and no rain has been able to put off the fire. The natural gas escaping from the ground is responsible for this wonderful sight.

7. The land of fire

Apart from nature’s glory of fire in this country, the first ever known fireplace is believed to have been built here some 700,000 to 500,000 years ago in the largest cave, the Azikh Cave.

8. Superstition 

A few popular beliefs are never to lend money or bred at night. Weird even, leaving scissors with open blades leads to misfortune and even death.  Not only that much, but misfortune will come your way if you meet a person with empty buckets. 

9. English, what is that!

Less than one percent of population here speaks English in comparison to 98.6 percent Azerbaijani speaking people. So, it’s suggested that you know a few important words to avoid embarrassment while you’re travelling here. 

If your love for originality is unmatched, this place is sure to win your heart so much so that you’d never have enough of it. So get the Visa TO Azerbaijan and get going today!
