Azerbaijan's nickname,"Land of Fire" is far more than a marketing slogan as you'll see at these two fascinating sites. Azerbaijan was one of the original homelands of the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism in which flames were seen as a symbol of the divine. And, as though heaven sent, it was a country where fires leapt spontaneously from the ground. And they still do as youll see at Yanar Dag (Burning Mountain). While hardly a mountain, this windswept hillside 25 kilometres northeast of Baku has been burning for as long as anyone can remember, and the fire isn't showing signs of going out any time soon. It's an unusual curiosity, but by no means the only fire phenomenon in Azerbaijan.
