The city of Baku has always been international. The multiculturalism of the city has not bypassed its religious component - Baku has been and remains the most poly-confessional city in the Caucasus. The majority of the population, of course, are ethnic Muslims, but for other representatives of the religions of Abrahamism, the city has always been hospitable and dear.

Our company organizes an exclusive tour of spiritual Baku. It begins with a sightseeing tour of the Old City, where guests get acquainted with the prominent historical temples of the capital: the Mohammed Mosque, the Seyid Yahya Mosque, the Juma Mosque, the ruins of the chapel of St. Bartholomew, Church of St. Nicholas.

After that, a trip around the city in a comfortable car begins. The trip includes a visit to the synagogue of Ashkenazi Jews, the Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Mother of God, the Catholic Church of St. Mary, the Muslim temple "Bibi Heybat" - the oldest mosque in Absheron and a visit to the youngest and largest mosque in the country "Heydar Mosque".

Having visited these wonderful places, it will become obvious to everyone that the spirit of faith in the One God is one of the main factors in the unity of Azerbaijanis, regardless of their ethnic origin and religious denomination.
