Airport of arrival: Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport
Flight time from Izmir to Baku: 3 hours

Baku, the biggest city of Azerbaijan, its capital, but also the oldest and most important port on the Caspian Sea. About 25% of all countries residents live in the Baku metropolitan area. That is an impressive introduction for a city that is not a primary touristic direction. Labeled by some as “the next Dubai," Baku still has some work to do to make it come true. Regardless of that, you will be thrilled to see its magnificent old town, and the variety of high-quality food will not only be surprising but also rewarding after you have already tried all (or at least most) of the local specialties. Sounds good? The cheap flight tickets are waiting for you to buy them and explore Baku by yourself!

You can get from the airport to the city center in 30 minutes by the airport shuttle; they depart every 30-60 minutes, around the clock.
