Mountains, sea and fine regional cuisine

Wedged between the Caspian Sea and the lush Talysh Mountains, Lankaran is a region of unique natural diversity. The city itself is an old port that used to be surrounded by fortifications, and it’s ideally placed between some of Azerbaijan’s best nature reserves. The swamps of the Gizil Aghaj reserve lie to the north and are rich in birdlife, while the Hirkan Forest to the south is home to ancient iron trees as well as the endangered Caucasian leopard. The region is also famed for its citrus fruits and flavoursome cuisine, as well as being the centre of Azerbaijani tea growing.
