Baku, one of the most beautiful world’s cities is located at the joint of Europe and Asia. The capital’s name itself is interpreted as a “wind blow”, “city of winds” or “hill”, “city on the hill”.
The port city of Baku, the cultural, industrial and political capital of Azerbaijan is located on the western Caspian seaside, on the bay shores of the same name in the southern part of the Apsheron Peninsula, rich in its oil fields. Baku consists of 11 administrative districts and 5 townships.
Baku is the largest cultural center of Azerbaijan. It is the place where a national theatre, the first in Muslim East, lifted the curtain, the first opera was performed, the first Azerbaijan newspaper was published, the first Azerbaijan library was opened.
Today Baku is known to have 30 museums, 7 theatres, 11 institutions of higher education, philharmonic, opera theatre, film studio, cinema theaters and libraries housed in the city’s most beautiful buildings having an interior decoration which is every bit as good as their interior cultural content.
Baku is the largest industrial center. It is the place of concentration of ancient oil fields, well-known Oil Stones, unique plant of deep water foundations, high-capacity derrick barges, and modern drilling floating units. It is also famous for developed oil refineries,
petrochemical, chemical, light, food, engineering branches of industry, oil equipment production, building materials, instrumentation, electrical engineering and radio electronics, shipbuilding. Baku is a large rail junction and port terminal in the Caspian Sea. Beginning from 1967 the Baku underground was put into operation in the capital.
Why Does ARICON Offer Free Tours During Each Conference?
In an era of globalization and multicultural sensitivity, study abroad programs are mushrooming all over the academic world. They would grow even further if academics had more time and resources to visit worldwide destinations to prepare future study abroad programs for their students.
Our conferences offer the perfect opportunity to blend in presentations with organized visits to locations that would make excellent venues for study abroad programs. Andy Warhol’s traditional fifteen minutes of fame — on the podium — stretch into days of academic interaction and discovery.
It defies logic to treat conference venues as isolated academic silos when they may also double up as potential venues for study abroad programs. As a result, we promote each conference as inseparable from its geographical location, history and culture.
We work hard to find sponsors in each conference’s geographical area that offer generous hospitality and tourism packages in parallel with our conference presentations. We make our attendees’ potential clear to our sponsors. Many graduate students and professors who attend academic conferences have a lifelong career in academia in front of them.
As a result, each attendee has the potential to multiply the number of future visitors to a conference’s wider geographical area. “We have memories so that we might have roses in December,” wrote Scottish novelist James Barrie. Without the opportunity to interact and share one’s research and ideas, what is the point of attending an academic conference?
There is no shortage of academic papers on the internet and at the libraries within our universities. One doesn’t need a conference to access academic research. Printed academic papers allow the reader to digest carefully instead of chasing a speaker racing against the clock. To understand what a modern conference should be like, we invite you to attend an ARICON conference and experience.
Poster sessions allow delegates to move around the room and discuss their research.
I’d love to attend the ARICON conferences again… I
am interested as at ARICON ZURICH I tend to meet
people from universities and locales around the
world. While there, I got two invitations to speak…
in Netherlands and Turkey.

The city of Quba is located 170 km to the north of Baku right on the picturesque hillsides. In the past it was the capital of Quba khanate which was founded in the mid -18th century.
The unsurpassed beauty of the local mountains was praised by such famous people as Alexander Duma-father, the Russian writer Bestuzhev-Marlinsky, the Norwegian traveler Tor Heerdal and others.
Indeed, the sceneries of Quba are hard to describe with words. It seems the nature has collected there the brightest colors: juicy greens of the alpine meadows, white snow caps, rapid transparent-blue mountain rivers. Worth visiting are the famous Afurdzhin Waterfall and Tenghi Canyon .
The notorius architectural landmarks are Dzhuma Mosque (19th century), Sakina-khanum mosque, Zoroastrian Temple in Khanalyg village, the octagonal mausoleum in Agbil village (16th century), Tengialtyn fortress etc. The symbols of Guba are apple orchards and beautiful Quba carpets which are popular far outside Azerbaijan .
Mausoleums of Agbil
The settlement of Agbil of Quba region is the place where three medieval mausoleums of the 16 century were found. Two of them are traditional rectangular structures. The third mausoleum is completely different due to its original architecture.
As a matter of fact this small square building from burnt bricks placed in an octagonal stone pillar. From the outside the mausoleum looks like an octahedron with a high dome and wide portal entrance, and from the inside it is a usual square room.
This mosque was erected in the 19th century. Its construction is typical only for the mosques of Quba province. It looks like a faceted cylinder i.e. has the form of a regular octagon. Inside there is a big hall crowned with a huge 16 m diameter dome. After Dzhuma Mosque had been built in Guba the same constructions began to appear in other areas of Azerbaijan .
Sakina-Khanum Mosque was built in 1854 by the widow of A. Bakikhanov – the well-known Azerbaijan scientist and writer to commemorate her late husband. The mosque amazes with its monumentalism. The building was built from red bricks and is similar to faceted cylinder.
Each facet has a window in the form of a semicircular arch. The top of the facade is surrounded by an original eaves made from small bricks. From top this stately building is crowed with a big white metal dome in the shape of a multi-faceted helmet. The top of the dome is decorated by a graceful thin spike.
The village of Khanalyg is located in Quba suburbs but tourists come here all the same to see the well-known local landmark – the ancient Zoroastrian Temple built in the 9th century. This temple stands on the site of “eternal” fire.
The villagers – khangali – themselves are historical and ethnic phenomenon. The thing is that they are descendants of ancient Albanian nations. Only about 1,000 in number they have managed to preserve their original language,
