Baku is a city that combines the dynamics of a modern metropolis and the flavor of a rich oriental culture.

It mixes modern unique architecture and historical buildings dating back thousands of years.

Baku is nicknamed "Eastern Paris" for its houses built in the French style, but in oriental, desert shades. The cuisine of Baku is also not inferior to the Parisian one.

Must-visit places of Baku

The most famous sights of the city:

  • Maiden's Tower. An ancient fortress building that has become a symbol of the capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The religious building of the pre-Islamic period, according to the assumptions of archaeologists, was a temple of fire.
  • Heydar Aliyev Center. The cultural center, which unites the Heydar Aliyev Museum, exhibition halls, and the "Auditorium" congress center, primarily attracts tourists with its unique appearance. Smooth transitions of edges, the absence of sharp corners is the result of the work of a famous architect of our time - Zaha Hadid.
  • Old city. The main historical area of Azerbaijan. The most important sights and ancient streets are concentrated here, introducing the spirit of the country. The Palace of the Shirvanshahs, the Maiden Tower, the Shemakha Gate, the Mosque of Muhammad, the Bazaar Square, and other equally important sights have been preserved in this area.
  • Palace of the Shirvanshahs. The former residence of the rulers of Shirvan. Eastern palace complex, built between the 13th and 16th centuries.
  • Towers of Flame. The highest buildings resembling tongues of flame are the face of modern Azerbaijan. The towers are located on a hill, so a beautiful view of the whole of Baku opens from here. It is highly recommended to visit this place at night.
  • Baku Crystal Hall. An unusual sports and concert complex was built in 2012 for the Eurovision Song Contest. The crystal-like building is located by the sea and is especially beautiful for its evening lighting.
