Agents can expect a peak in interest in Baku, say Eastern Europe specialists, Regent Holidays, who have reported a massive surge in hits to the Azerbaijan page of their website during and immediately after Saturday's Eurovision song contest, which took place in the Azeri capital.
Usually, the Azerbaijan page receives around 70 hits a day, but on Saturday, over 1500 people visited the page, enthused - it would appear - by snapshots of the country's stunning landscape shown in between songs and witty banter from Graham Norton.
Regent Holidays had the pleasure of co-ordinating travel to Baku for the UK's official Eurovision fan club, so are better placed than any to organise a four night Baku city break from £770 per person, including accommodation in a three star hotel on bed and breakfast basis and flights with Azerbaijan Airlines.
Yet more fascinating would be to combine the Azeri capital with the Caucasus Capitals of Georgia and Armenia, where the three different cities make excellent bases from which to explore the wider reaches of the region in a series of day trips. A thirteen day tour combining Baku, Tbilisi and Yerevan will start from £1645 including flights and accommodation on bed and breakfast basis in a selection of three star hotels, bus and train tickets between the capitals.
