Climate in Baku

Baku experiences a cold semi-arid climate characterized by hot and humid summers, cool and intermittently wet winters, and persistent strong winds throughout the year. 

Unlike other cities with similar climates, Baku does not have excessively hot summers or extended periods of sunshine due to its northern latitude and its location on a peninsula along the Caspian Sea coastline.

Baku, along with the Absheron Peninsula where it is located, represents the driest area of Azerbaijan, receiving approximately 200 mm (8 in) or less of precipitation annually. 

This dryness is mainly attributed to the rain shadow effect from the Caucasian Mountains, while areas at similar latitudes near the Black Sea receive more than 2,300 mm (91 in) on average. 

Most of the limited annual rainfall occurs during seasons other than summer, and none of these seasons are notably wet.

Religion in Azerbaijan 

The largest religion in Azerbaijan is Islam, with the majority being Shia Muslims. Azerbaijan has a diverse religious landscape that includes Russian Orthodox Christians, Catholic Levantines, Georgian Orthodox Christians, Albanian-Udi Apostolic Christians, Lutherans, Ashkenazi Jews, and Sufi Muslims alongside other faiths. 

As mandated by its Constitution, Azerbaijan is a secular state that ensures freedom of religion for all its citizens. Baku also serves as the seat of the Catholic Apostolic Prefecture of Azerbaijan.

Baku is a significant tourist destination in the Caucasus, with hotels in the city generating 7 million euros in revenue back in 2009. The city boasts numerous popular tourist and entertainment attractions such as Fountains Square, One and Thousand Nights Beach, Shikhov Beach, Oil Rocks, and Yanar Dag—an ever-burning natural gas spot.

Additionally, Baku features several prominent shopping malls including Port Baku, Park Bulvar, Metro Park, Ganjlik Mall, 28 MALL, Aygun City, and AF MALL offering a range of shopping options from chain stores to high-end boutiques.

Nizami Street and Neftchilar Avenue in particular have gained notoriety as being among the most expensive streets worldwide. According to Mercer Human Resource Consulting’s 2011 ranking, Baku ranked 48th in its list of most expensive cities globally.
