Azerbaijan is proving to be a potential tourism destination for the Czech tourists. Czech Ambassador to Azerbaijan Vitezslav Pivonka said in an interview that after any positive changes in visa regime it is possible to expect increased flow of tourists into the country.
Azerbaijan introduced the ASAN Visa system on January 10, which made it possible for the foreigners and stateless persons to get an e-visa to the country through a single online portal within three days without applying to state organizations.
Pivonka noted that Czech tourists prefer to engage in various activities during their holidays. Hiking, cycling, climbing, etc. are mostly the popular choices for the tourists visiting the country. However, he also said that Azerbaijan needs to facilitate these kinds of activities. The Czech tourists prefer active style of holiday, he added.
The geographical position of Azerbaijan on the coast of the Caspian Sea and at the southern part of the Caucasus mountain range will prove appealing to the Czech tourists, but at the same time it is necessary to provide the tourists with the possibility to visit historical monuments, national parks or other attractive places of the country. The Czechs don’t know that meals like shashlik (skewered meat), kebab (small cubes of meat or fish threaded on a skewer and grilled), piti soup (a type of meat broth) or plov (cooked rice) are so closely connected with Azerbaijan, he added.
Comparatively low prices of property in relation to other Central European countries are what add to the decisions of any potential buyers. But it will need the high standards of the construction work.
