Some azerbaijani traditions

Many national traditions are incarnated in hospitality. Guests are given places of honor in Azerbaijani traditions, and treated with the utmost respect.

Beyond celebrations and food, gulesh is another important part of Azerbaijani culture.

Although most people today wear modern clothing, traditional Azerbaijani clothing can still be seen at festivals and other events.

One of the most energetic and vivid parts of traditions in Azerbaijan, dances are created to tell stories, be performed at ceremonies, and impress audiences.
