After such a mini-trip, you need a delicious and nutritious meal. And, fortunately, Batumi is famous for special dishes that are definitely worth trying. Go to any restaurant and order Adjarian-style khachapuri, khinkali or signature barbecue.

When you have enjoyed this region enough, go to the capital. It must be visited. Find at least one day to take a quick run through the outstanding locations of Tbilisi. If you don’t have much time, immediately go to the ancient fortress of Narikala. It is located in the very center – on the sacred mountain of Mtatsminda.

Among the modern attractions, you should visit the Bridge of Peace, which symbolizes mutual understanding between all people on Earth. Despite the difference in cultures, religions and traditions, we have a lot in common. And don’t forget about it.

Imagine the architecture of Paris, Vienna and Barcelona combined with an oriental flavor. Such species are found at every step in the capital of Azerbaijan. Yes, Baku is a very specific city. But in a good understanding of this word.

Here you will not need a map or a navigator. And why are they when every house is like a carpet: with its patterns, ornaments, elements that you want to look at without taking your eyes off. What does it say about mosques, minarets, antique benches or teahouses.

Arriving in Baku, we recommend not to focus on ancient or modern attractions, but to make the most of the trip. That is, visit all possible historical sights and new buildings. Moreover, they are located next to each other.

The Maiden’s Tower is the oldest building in the city, which has been perfectly preserved to this day. It has been rising here for more than ten centuries, and it seems that it will last just as long. By the way, it is still unknown exactly how it was used. There is a legend that once a ruler wanted to marry his own daughter. But she could not stand such a sad fate and threw herself from the highest floor. But this is only a legend. Most historians do not believe in such folk tales. According to their assumptions, the building was used as an observatory, a lighthouse or a temple.

Don’t forget to walk along Primorsky Boulevard. There are fountains, attractions, a parachute tower and a shopping center. It was he who inspired the architect of the famous opera house in Sydney.

You can talk about these countries for a long time. But you know that it is better to see once than to read a hundred times.
