The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Baku
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
In the capital of Azerbaijan, the past meets the future face to face. The modern architecture of the city is as beautiful as the historical buildings of the Icheri-Sheher district and has great cultural value. The flaming towers rival the ancient Maiden Tower in expressiveness. The magnificent forms of the Shirvanshahs’ Palace somewhere even lose out to the pomp and luxury of the newly built Bibi-Eybat Mosque.
Today Baku enjoys all the advantages of generous financial flows from oil and gas production, as well as a rich historical heritage, which the city inherited from the colourful previous centuries. The city’s tourism industry is developing very rapidly, as new cultural facilities are constantly being built in Baku and places of interest to visitors to the republic are appearing.
