Azerbaijan straddles the border between Europe and Asia in the Caucasus region with an east coast on the Caspian Sea. It borders Russia to the north, Georgia and Armenia to the west, and Iran (proper) to the south.
Azerbaijan was divided between the Russian Empire and the Persian Empire by the Treaty of Ghulistan in 1813. As such not all of Azerbaijan is inside the independent Republic of Azerbaijan (independent from Russia* since 1992).
Currently Azerbaijan is divided between Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan. The larger portion of Azerbaijan currently lies within the borders of Iran and this Iranian administered area is divided into thee provinces, namely; East Azerbaijan, West Azerbaijan and Ardabil.
*Note - the Russian Empire was called the U.S.S.R. between about 1922 and 1992.
Azerbaijan's main city, Baku is in the European Continent. However, about half of it is in Asia.
Many consider Azerbaijan European cause of the culture, secular lifestyle, and education system that is similar to Eastern European countries.
For example Azerbijan plays in Europeans Soccer Tournoments, it competes in Eurovision, is part of the European Customes (EC), and etc.
Azerbaijan is located in East Asia. Some say it is in Europe, but it is geographically in Asia, some small portions of it may be in Europe, but the country is mostly Asian, for the fact it is a Muslim country, so it is really a transcontinental country. Azerbaijan and Georgia are both members of the Council of Europe and are regarded as "European countries" by the European Union; their embassies or officials and others have stated that they are in Europe, part of Europe, or partly in Europe. Europe and Asia are both on the same tectonic plate; Eurasia, either way it goes, Azerbaijan is located in Eurasia.
Azerbaijan is a Eurasian country, meaning it straddles the two continents of Europe and Asia. However, the city of Baku is considered part of Europe.
