Long a gateway to the historic cities and dry mountains of eastern Azerbaijan from the low-lying, fecund Caspian, Ardabil makes for an interesting stopover. The Unesco-listed Sheikh Safi-od-Din Mausoleum is by far its greatest attraction, but there’s a scattering of other minor sights. On crisp, clear days, Mt Sabalan’s snow-topped peak rises dramatically above Ardabil’s Shurabil Lake. Ardabil sits on a high, windswept plateau. The weather is pleasantly cool in summer but can turn somewhat nasty by year's end. While snow is possible from November, white winters are becoming shorter.
