The reserve is well known for its perfectly preserved rock paintings - petroglyphs - a kind of artistic "archive" of human evolution on the Earth.

"Documents" of such archives is the first human’s presentation of his/her "I" to the outside world.

Gobustan Rocks are not just the brightest witnesses of the prehistoric period of human existence. They reflect the history of this region for nearly 15,000 years - from the end of the era of the Upper Paleolithic till the Middle Ages. Of particular interest are the images of multi-oar boats, with a light source at the stern. They were drowned above the level at which people had been portrayed, and this phenomenon set up a lot of different interpretations. Today Azerbaijani scientists found, described, and studied more than 4,000 petroglyphs (rock painting in the stone carving art) and this important work continues.

Before the start of the tour around Gobustan guests will visit the interactive museum with the same name, wherewith the help of special programs and multimedia touch screens you will get information about nature, the flora of Gobustan.

Only a few people know that Azerbaijan ranks first place in the number of active mud volcanoes. Traces of their work can be found in Gobustan as well. These volcanoes are formations of a cone-shaped hill with a crater in the ground.

And of course, that the tourists also have the opportunity to explore them during this tour.
