The audience could see the modern and ancient architectural masterpieces on the photos, such as the Heydar Aliyev Center, the Carpet Museum, the Zira eco-park, the Maiden Tower and the Palace of Sheki Khans. The visitors got acquainted with the views of the Gobustan National Park, as well as the Old City (Icheri Sheher) and the Gala Reserve. The ancient Jewish settlement Krasnaya Sloboda, as well as the German colony and the castle-like religious temple Ateshgah demonstrate the Azerbaijani people's tolerance. The photos of the old Bibi Heybat oil field, a unique hospital Naftalan and numerous mud volcanoes, located on the territory of Azerbaijan, show its unique nature.
