About 1 hour drive from Baku, the Gobustan Rock Art site covers a huge area of more than 500ha. Visitors will only see a small part along a well marked track. There are thousands of engravings, dating back tens of thousands of years. Some carvings stand out clearly, others need pointing out - and it helps if you have a good guide with you.
The views over the Caspian Sea are splendid from this height.

A great place for rock climbing. Various scriptures can be seen on the rocks. Looks like ancient artitec full of drawings.

It's amazing how you can get up close to the rock art and try to decipher what the pictures are and what they might mean. You follow a path through the area to see several of the sites in turn, some of these have explanation boards. Our guide was good in that he was able to point out pictures we might have missed. You need to concentrate to see them as you can easily miss them.

The petroglyphs are outstanding and a definite must for a visit if you are in Baku. Museum first then a walk well marked out to view the rock art

Really enjoyed the museum and walking around the rocks viewing petroglyphs. Luckily we had a great guide who was able to point out some of the more obscure ones,

Terrific little museum and then after a short drive (or 25min walk) the excellent site with easily walkable trails with explanatory boards/

An easy drive an hour south of Baku. No guide needed but plenty available if you feel the need. Small entrance fee. Allow about 90-120 mins for a reasonable visit.

Saw a few rock paintings and Petroglyphs which was difficult to understand for a amateur tourist but thankfully one of the guides was present to explain us one particular rock painting.Visiting the entire 537 hectares(1328 acres) Rock Art cultural landscape could take a entire day or day's and hence after a brief visit to the first few Rock art stones made our way back to the car park.

Definitely do a tour of the Gobustan National Historical-Artistic Preserve Museum and Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape. There are English-speaking guides available, you just have to ask. Our guide, Fruzia (I believe), was incredibly knowledgable, informative, and eager for the chance to practice her English with native speakers. The museum over this UNESCO World Heritage Site is BRILLIANTLY done! It is very, interactive and kid friendly, with round rooms for each exhibit, very unique -- very in-line with Baku's interesting architecture and artistically minded people and country. After touring all of the exhibits around the museum, our guide from the museum also took us to the outdoor rock landscape to see the petroglyphs.

A very interesting archaeological site where you can see real drawings of the Stone Age, which are more than many thousands of years old. But start your visit with the museum! The museum impressed with both expositions and very interesting audio and video presentations.
