It is famous for an abundance of vegetables and greens used seasonally in the dishes. Fresh herbs, including mint, coriander, dill, basil, parsley, tarragon, leek, chive, thyme, marjoram, green onion and watercress, are very popular and often accompany main dishes. The Caspian Sea is home to many edible species of fish, including the sturgeon, Caspian salmon, kutum, sardines, grey mullet, and others. Black caviar from the Caspian Sea is one of Azerbaijan's best known delicacies well sought after in other parts of the world, including former Soviet countries. The main courses of Azerbaijani cuisine are over 30 kinds of soups, including those prepared from plain yogurt. One of the most reputed dishes of Azerbaijani cuisine, however, is plov from saffron-covered rice, served with various herbs and greens, a combination totally distinctive from Uzbek plovs. Azerbaijani cuisine includes more than 40 different plov recipes. Other second courses include a wide variety of kebabs and shashliks, including lamb, beef, chicken, and fish (baliq) kebabs. Sturgeon, a common fish, is normally skewered and grilled as a shashlik, being served with a tart pomegranate sauce called narsharab. Dried fruits and walnuts are used in many dishes. The traditional condiments are salt, black pepper, sumac, and especially saffron, which is grown domestically on the Absheron Peninsula. Black tea is the national beverage, and is drunk after food is eaten. It is also a welcome beverage, often accompanied by fruit preserves.

Azerbaijan - The Land of Magic Colours. Baku, Azerbaijan, Баку, Азербайджан, Bakı, Azərbaycan.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etjjKAGzMic Azerbaijan, Baku, Where is Azerbaijan, Culture of Azerbaijan, History of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan (Azerbaijani: Azərbaycan), officially the Republic of Azerbaijan (Azerbaijani: Azərbaycan Respublikası), is the largest country in the Caucasus region located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. The name of Azerbaijan derives from that of Atropates, a Iranian satrap under the Achaemenid Empire, who was later reinstated as the satrap of Media under Alexander the Great. The original etymology of this name is thought to have its roots in the once-dominant Zoroastrian religion. In the Avesta, Frawardin Yasht ("Hymn to the Guardian Angels"). The word "Āzar" (Iranian: آذر‎) means Fire and baijan was originally rendered as "Pāyegān" (Iranian: پایگان‎), meaning Guardian/Protector (Āzar Pāyegān = "Guardians of Fire") (Iranian: آذر پایگان‎). This etymology directly links the country to its original religion, zorastrianism. After the Muslim conquest of Iran many Iranian words lost their original form as in Arabic there are no letters for pronouncing "G / P / ZH / CH"; hence, "Azar Paigān" came to be known as Azarbaijan. Azerbaijan is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the Northwest, Armenia to the west and Iran to the south. The exclave of Nakhchivan is bounded by Armenia to the north and east, Iran to the south and west, while having a short borderline with Turkey to the Northwest. Azerbaijan has an ancient and historic cultural heritage, including the distinction of being the first Muslim-majority country to have operas, theatres and plays.The Azerbaijan Democratic Republic was established in 1918, but was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1920. Azerbaijan regained independence in 1991. Shortly thereafter, during the Nagorno-Karabakh War, neighbouring Armenia occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, its surrounding territories. Azerbaijan is a unitary constitutional republic. It is one of the six independent Turkic states, being an active member of the Turkic Council and the TÜRKSOY community. Azerbaijan has diplomatic relations with 158 countries and holds membership in 38 international organizations. A member of the United Nations since 1992. The country is also a member of the OSCE, the Council of Europe, and the NATO Partnership for Peace (PfP) program. Azerbaijan is a correspondent at the International Telecommunication Union and member of the Non-Aligned Movement and holds observer status in World Trade Organization. The Constitution of Azerbaijan does not declare an official religion, and all major political forces in the country are secular, but the majority of people adhere to Shia Islam. Azerbaijan has a high level of human development. It has a high economic development and literacy and intentional homicide. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe on Youtube/Подписывайтесь на Ютубе: http://www.youtube.com/user/HaciChelebi http://www.youtube.com/user/BakuAndAzerbaijan On Facebook/На Фейсбуке: https://www.facebook.com/NagornoKarabakhAZ On Twitter/ В Твиттере: https://twitter.com/NagorNKarabakh Live Journal / На ЖЖ: http://NagornoKarabakh.livejournal.com/ VKontakte/ В Контакте: http://vk.com/NagornoKarabakh Odnoklassniki /Одноклассники http://www.odnoklassniki.ru/NagornoKarabakhAZ

http://www.euronews.com/ The Caucasus region is a crossroads of more than 50 ethnic groups and a variety of religious beliefs. Many of these populations have inhabited the region since ancient times. The World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue is currently being held in Baku, Azerbaijan. An event where religious and opinion leaders have gathered to discuss problems relating to the relationship between different cultures and religions. Azerbaijan is one example of this Caucasian cultural mosaic, where Ethnic and religious coexistence is a major concern. Rev Canon Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff from the Anglican Church explained: "There is a lot of tension that we capture when we look at the globalisation and whether the homogenization of the global culture is something that is challenging and the way that people find it threatening on their local communities and their local identities. That's a very large part of the tensions that we discern. So we have to explore how to be authentic in our local identity within this greater context" In the Caucasus it is still possible to find extremely isolated communities. Euronews went to Khinalig, a village located at an altitude of 2300 metres on the Azerbaijani side of the Caucasus mountain range. The people from Khinalig belong to the Kettidt minority and speak the Kettish language. Some of the people also speak the majority Azerbaijani language. The village, with around 2000 inhabitants, is the oldest and most remote in Azerbaijan and among the highest human settlements in Europe. The people are Sunni Muslim, living in a secular country with a majority of Shiite Muslims. A local villager spoke to Euronews about the community saying, "It's very important to preserve the history, the culture and the language of this specific ethnicity, our ancestors lived here for 6000 years and it is important to show the world that we have such small minorities still living here". Khinalig is located in the Region of Quba in Northern Azerbaijan. It has recently gained a reputation as a trekker's paradise and the people of Khinalig have started renting rooms to foreigners who like to get off the beaten track. Qirmisi Qasaba, meaning red settlement, is just across the river in the city of Quba in the ancient Jewish part of the city. The local inhabitants are known as Dagyahudi, literally meaning "the mountain Jews". The people speak Juhury, a language made up of 70 per cent Farsi with elements of Hebrew and Turkish. According to some sources, the Jewish community were brought to Azerbaijan by the Persians and settled around 500BC. For many years they have lived alongside the Muslim people, in this part of the Caucasus the Middle East conflict seems far away. Rabbi Elazar Nisimov spoke on the issue, "We know that this conflict is temporary. We are structurally the branches that come from the same root. We are the branches of this single tree, both Muslims and Jews, here everybody understands that." One Jewish community that Euronews spoke to often meet to discuss local problems and the relationship with other communities. The leader of the Mountain Jews, Boris Simanduev, is eighty years old and is used to dealing with the other religious institutions. Despite the mutual tolerance, the two communities do not mix, they simply coexist without any tension. "In 1995 I started working here as Imam, and since that time I started cooperating for the improvement of relationships with the head of the Jewish community" said Haci Naib. Sitting beside him, Boris Simanduev, head of the Jewish community of Quba added: "In Quba's Red Settlement there are very few marriages among Jews and Muslims; it's a very small percentage. But some mixed marriages exist". The Baku World Forum addressed some of the many challenges that arise in intercultural dialogue, from conceptual frameworks and governance to policy and practice. The event has also taken responsibility for delivering the Global Agenda for Dialogue among Civilisations which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in November 2001. Overall the Forum also hopes to convey the message that tolerance is possible. A difficult task considering the thousands of unresolved religious and ethnic conflicts still raging across the world, as well as in the Caucasus.

BBC: Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center - Baku, Azerbaijan by Zaha Hadid. Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center. http://youtu.be/XVJ1vfgv8TQ Baku, Azerbaijan, Zaha Hadid, Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center The Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center ( Heydər Əliyev Mərkəzi) - is a cultural complex constructed in Baku, Azerbaijan. The complex is designed by renowned Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid. The Cultural Center will house a conference hall with 3 auditoriums, a library and a museum. Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center occupies the area of 57,519 sq m rising to a height of 22m. The proposal for the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center envisions a fluid form which emerges by the folding of the landscape's natural topography and by the wrapping of individual functions of the Center. All functions of the Center, together with entrances, are represented by folds in a single continuous surface. This fluid form gives an opportunity to connect the various cultural spaces whilst, at the same time, providing each element of the Center with its own identity and privacy. As it folds inside, the skin erodes away to become an element of the interior landscape of the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center. The immateriality of a building that varies between white, whiter, and whitest—depending on how the sun strikes its radial surfaces—seems weightless, releasing visitors from gravitational obligations. As an object, the building is subjective, provoking strong feelings cued by the physics of suspending gravity. The main building of the Cultural Center consists of three parts: Museum of Heydar Aliyev, exhibition centers and "Auditorium" Exhibitions centres: "Masterpieces of Azerbaijan", "Mini-Azerbaijan","Welcome to Azerbaijan" , "Azerbaijani Cuisine" ----------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe on Youtube/Подписывайтесь на Ютубе: http://www.youtube.com/user/HaciChelebi http://www.youtube.com/user/BakuAndAzerbaijan On Facebook/На Фейсбуке: https://www.facebook.com/NagornoKarabakhAZ On Twitter/ В Твиттере: https://twitter.com/NagorNKarabakh Live Journal / На ЖЖ: http://NagornoKarabakh.livejournal.com/ VKontakte/ В Контакте: http://vk.com/NagornoKarabakh Odnoklassniki /Одноклассники http://www.odnoklassniki.ru/NagornoKarabakh

UNESCO: Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity - 2010 URL: http://www.unesco.org/culture/ich/RL/00389 Description: The Azerbaijani carpet is a traditional handmade textile of various sizes, with dense texture and a pile or pile-less surface, whose patterns are characteristic of Azerbaijan's many carpet-making regions. Carpet making is a family tradition transferred orally and through practice. Men shear sheep in spring and autumn, while women collect dyestuffs and spin and dye yarn in the spring, summer and autumn. The weaving is undertaken during winter by the female members of the extended family, girls learning from their mothers and grandmothers and wives assisting their mothers-in-law. The carpet is made on horizontal or vertical looms using multi-coloured wool, cotton or silk yarn coloured with natural dyes. Applying special techniques to create pile carpets, weavers knot the pile yarn around threads of the warp; pile-less carpets are variously made with interlacing structural warps, wefts, and patterning wefts. The cutting of a finished carpet from the loom is an unusually solemn celebration. Carpet weaving is closely connected with the daily life and customs of the communities involved, its role reflected in the meaning of the designs and their applications. Thus, girls seated on carpets tell fortunes and sing traditional songs at Novruz (the regional New Year). The carpet is widely used for home furniture and decoration, and special carpets are woven for medical treatment, for wedding ceremonies, the birth of a child, mourning rituals and prayer.
