History and hazelnuts in the far north-west

You’ll find some interesting variations on traditional dishes in Azerbaijan’s far north-west, an area famous for its top-notch nuts and persimmons, both of which have their own dedicated harvest festivals. With various powers having ruled over this north-west corner of Azerbaijan, from Caucasian Albanians kings to Georgian queens and Russian tsars, the region is brimming with fascinating historical traces – the ruins of fortresses, towers and temples can all be explored. Plus, the ever-present Caucasus Mountains are home to an emerging network of enticing hiking trails.
