Overview

The first English guide to this fascinating country, formerly part of the Soviet Union. This book helps the traveler with the practical details of visiting Azerbaijan while also discussing its history and geography. It has been little traveled in the past due to lack of information beyond the metropolitan capital of Baku. The guide fills those information gaps with practical advice for travelers, as well as facts regarding visas, lodging, eating and more.

The guide uses author Mark Elliott's hand drawn, detailed maps of the surroundings with pointed comments on each. The entire country is covered, with its desert moonscapes, tropical forests, volcanoes and snow-capped mountains and its history steeped in myth and magic. Azerbaijan's equally neglected neighbor, Georgia, is outlined in this guide as well.

    I love those maps! They're full of info and pictures

    I can't agree with the 'master cartographer' that the maps are unreadable, though they are sometimes so full of information that they need a bit of concentration. Before this book there was nothing written at all to help people travel around, enjoy and get a cultural understanding of this place. But thanks to this guide, a lot of us that thought Azerbaijan was goint to be an oil-hardship posting have discovered that it's a really beautiful, varied and incredible place. The maps are really the book's strongest point as there are absolutely no published city plans of anywhere outside Baku. And the little pictures are really handy - even shows sketches of bus stops where you need to turn (there aren't many road signs here). It has pages and pages of useful appendices which are cool too. The title is Azerbaijan with Georgia, but the Georgia section is relatively small - again lots of maps, but seems to be included just for people going there on weekends from Baku. The Azerbaijan section - the overwhelming majority - is very comprehensive. I heard that a Lonely Planet book for the Caucasus is coming out later this year, but it's hard to imagine that it would really compete - has to cover three countries. I would suggest that anyone coming to Baku / Azerbaijan seriously considers getting this 'bible' before they come - it is difficult to find a copy here in Azerbaijan.

    Maps? Very confusing!

    Fresh style of writing; useful information, too - but the socalled 'maps'? A desaster - they're more bad sketches, absolutely confusing and actually nearly illegible. Thanks to the author's life partner Dani Systermans for her comment, too...

    Not just the only guide, but a great read too!

    The key to the book is the detail - over a hundred maps which cover almost every major town in the country and even some villages in the middle of nowhere, plus useful overall maps pointing out where speed traps and bribe points lie. Very handy, the one thing that might be useful is a bigger country map though they're easy to buy in Baku. The books other great joy is all the little pictures of the sights (included on the maps or separate) plus the historical detail and the very extensive food section which deals with not just Azeri food but also Turkish, Russian and Georgian.
