Weather & climate
Best time to visit:
The best time to visit Azerbaijan is during spring (March-June) when
the weather is warm and the foliage is in full bloom. The summer
months (July-September) can be oppressively hot and humid,
particularly in the capital, Baku, but they are also the best months
to go hiking in the mountains.
Although temperatures along the Caspian coastline remain mild
throughout winter (November-February), the mercury dip well below
freezing further inland. The mountains at this time of the year are
covered in snow and very treacherous. Though downpours do occur
throughout the country, most of the rainfall is confined to the west.
Light-weight clothing is fine for low-lying destination in the summer
months, but coats and sweaters are advised at other times. Bring warm
clothing if you are heading to the mountains, which remain chilly
throughout the year.
Azerbaijan is bordered by the Russian Federation, Georgia, Iran and
Armenia. Much of Southwestern Azerbaijan in the ethnically Armenian
region of Nagorno-Karabakh is occupied by Armenian forces following
the Armenia-Azerbaijan war (1988-1994). Azerbaijan also includes the
exclave of Nakhchivan, which is located between Turkey, Iran and
