Welcome to Astara

Marshrutky to Lənkəran (AZN1, 50 minutes) depart regularly till 3pm from beside Azərbaycan küç 36, two minutes’ walk north of Hotel Şindan. Taxis cost AZN12. Ask them to stop en route at Yanar Bulağ (Burning Spring) where ‘water burns’ at a roadside standpipe 9km north. Bring your own matches.

A sleeper train departing Astara at 7.30pm (platskart/kupe AZN6/8) arrives in Baku 6.25am. However, Astara’s station is inconveniently located so you might prefer to board in Lənkəran.
