In the capital of Azerbaijan, the past meets the future face to face. The modern architecture of the city is not inferior in beauty to the historical buildings of the Icheri-Sheher district and has great cultural value. The Flame Towers compete in expressiveness with the ancient Maiden Tower. The magnificent forms of the Shirvanshahs’ palace even lose somewhere in the pomp and luxury of the newly rebuilt Bi bi-Eibat mosque.
Today, Baku enjoys all the benefits of generous financial flows from oil and gas production, as well as the rich historical heritage that the city inherited from the eventful events of previous centuries. The tourist industry of the city is developing very rapidly, as new cultural objects are constantly being built in Baku and places of interest for the guests of the republic appear.
