By Laman Ismayilova
When you think of Azerbaijani culture, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the art of carpet weaving.
With their centuries-old history, national carpet schools including Baku, Shirvan, Guba, Tabriz, Karabakh, Ganja and Gazakh are invaluable all over the world.
In 2019, the art of Azerbaijani carpet making was proclaimed a masterpiece of intangible heritage by UNESCO.
National carpets adorn the walls of world famous museums and form a large part of private collections.
Thanks to its rich collection, the Carpet Museum successfully promotes Azerbaijani carpets all over the world.
In recent years, the museum has become a popular tourist attraction in Azerbaijan. Its collection contains more than 14,000 pieces, including rare samples of different artistic styles.
A visit to the iconic museum is likely to be at the top of any traveler’s list.
In 2022, the National Carpet Museum received a certificate of
Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice for the fifth time, reports Azernews.
Tripadvisor is the largest travel platform in the world that collects millions of reviews of certain companies in the tourism sector.
Many sites, hotels and restaurants offering excellent service have been awarded the Certificate of Excellence since 2010.
This certificate cannot be requested – it is awarded to objects based on positive reviews from millions of people.
In other words, this certificate is awarded to tourist sites that in the past year have received excellent travel reviews on TripAdvisor.
Despite all the pandemic challenges, the museum continues to meet visitor expectations.
The museum had already obtained this certificate in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
