A place to discover: Lankaran and Lerik Travel Guide

posted in: Travel | 1

Happy Monday everyone!

Azerbaijan, the Land of Fire, is a country that has unlimited natural resources, centuries-old culture, history and traditions. I am discovering step by step this unique nation since living in Baku.

This time I am sharing the pictures with you that I took on my recent trip to Lankaran and Lerik.

You can also watch the video that I filmed and recently posted.

Because the weather is getting warmer, we traveled on our motorcycle, so we could better enjoy the wonderful views.

Lankaran is one of the oldest cities in Azerbaijan. The archaeologists have confirmed that the area was inhabited from the Bronze Age.

We stayed at the Gafgaz Sahil Hotel for a night. As you can see on this picture, the hotel (on the right) is very close to the Caspian Sea (on the left).

Lerik can be reached from Lankaran using the A323 road. It is a very picturesque route along the Lankaran River and the Hirkan National Park.

Lerik has an amazing setting. Behind are grassy mountains, shrill peaks and a series of deep strident ravines. In front are forested valleys with agricultural hills rolling away towards Yardimli.

We spent the second night at Hotel Relax, located in the middle of the mountain nature where we could experience springs, rivers and incredible landscapes.

It was a great experience because we met fantastic local people selling organic fruit and vegetables along the road and we enjoyed with them talking about football.
