Let's celebrate Azerbaijan Festivals
This Sunday 18 October is Azerbaijan National Day. On this day Azerbaijanis celebrate the Independence day of their country when the Supreme Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan approved and adopted the constitutional act "On the State Independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan" that took place on 18 October 1991. This country of the Caucasus region is located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia.
Azerbaijan is part of the 45 countries in which FestivalFinder.eu is active. To put the spotlight on this country, we will present two festivals registered on our search tool running in the marvelous Baku City.
The name of this festival comes from the great mystic Nasimi poet. The message conveyed by the Nasimi Festival is focusing on multiple aspects related to the poet such as: celebrating the living impact of his oeuvre, observing his spiritual values in various contexts to expand the ideas of dignity and compassion or their contemporary manifestation across the spheres of human activity.
