International Dolma Festival

Those who love to travel become an inheritable part of the world cuisine and a visit to Azerbaijan cannot be completed without tasting dolma!

This stuffed meal is widely prepared in kitchens across the Middle East, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia. However, in Azerbaijan this dish is iconic, no Azerbaijani table is complete without dolma.

You can also soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful summer weather at International Dolma Festival.

The festival features several stands with different kinds of dolma, such as aubergines, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers as well as made of cabbage leaves, apple and quince and more.

It is traditionally stuffed with ground lamb and/or beef, rice, onions, and herbs. Dolma is best served with cold plain yogurt, and lavash bread.

In 2017, dolma was recognized as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Here you can also enjoy an evening folk music and concert with a fantastic line up of folk musicians and bands.
