“Extreme” celebration of Novruz holiday in Baku (PHOTOS)

Azerbaijan marks the traditional Novruz holiday every year, as this holiday is one of the most loved in the country. Novruz marks the Persian New Year, and the beginning of Spring.

As a tribute to pre-Islamic Zoroastrian beliefs, every Tuesday during four weeks before the holiday kids jump over small bonfires and candles are lit. On the holiday eve the graves of relatives are visited and tended.

Below is an “extreme” photosession related to the Novruz holiday, prepared by Azerbaijan’s “RoofsUp” team. The shoot took place on the top of Baku’s Maiden Tower.
