3 Azerbaijani resorts may add to European Association of Historic Thermal Spas

August 02, 2015


The Ministry of Culture & Tourism of Azerbaijan informs that on July 22-29 Michel Thomas Pinet and Ahmet Hikmet Shakhin studied the possibility of country’s participation in EHTTA’s project "Thermal Routes”.

"We estimated thermal sanatoriums Istisu in Masalli, Yengicə in Gabala and Qalaaltı in Shabran, which generally conform to the European standards, although they have their own specifics. The Culture & Tourism Ministry wants to expand sanatoriums’ capabilities due to their joining the Association, and for that purpose we’ll prepare and present a certificate and submit it to the EHTTA Technical Committee. Only after that the registration of membership will begin," Pinet said following the visit.

In turn, Shakhin underlined the great potential of thermal tourism in Azerbaijan. 

"The only challenge today is to attract qualified doctors to Azerbaijani sanatoriums," Shakhin said.
