The Palace of Shirvanshahs is a royal palace from the 15th century which stands out to be the finest surviving example of Shirvan architecture is definitely a highlight.

Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at hotel and go on your tour of the Absheron Peninsula. Drive to the famous Ateshgah, located in Surakhany village. Then, visit Yanar Dag Mountain which is the most famous and popular tourist site of the “eternal flame” in Azerbaijan. It is rather a hill than a mountain, with natural gas burning on its slope from ancient times. There is no seepage of mud or liquid, which distinguishes it from the nearby mud volcanoes. Only a handful of fire mountains exist today in the world, and most are located in Azerbaijan. Return to Baku.
