Azerbaijan boasts the fact that it has the biggest number of mud volcanoes in the world (350 out of 800 volcanoes of the planet are situated there).

Mud volcanoes are related to oil/gas deposits. Their eruptions are accompanied by powerful explosions and underground rumble. Gases which come out blaze up, sometimes making the fire as tall as 1000 meters. In Azerbajlan, there have been over 200 eruptions since 1810.

So, if you take a one hour drive south of Baku, you’ll see this:
