Azerbaijan, located on the shores of the Caspian Sea, is an oil rich and strategically important nation that is the key geopolitical power in the Caucasus. Azerbaijanâ€™s location has made it a gateway between east and west, and the country was an important stop on the Silk Route. It has been an independent republic since the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan and the largest city in the Caucasus. The city is located on the southern shore of Absheron peninsula with a territory covering over 2,130 square kilometers. It slopes like an amphitheater down the peninsula into a bay. Azerbaijanâ€™s rich cultural and historical heritage is introduced to the visitors of Baku through various museums, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, theaters, concert halls, but most importantly by the beauty of the city itself. Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy University (ADA University) is a world-class institution dedicated to preparing innovative global leaders and to promoting useful collaborative research on diplomacy, public and international affairs, business, humanities and sciences, information technologies and system engineering.
