City of Winds

The capital of Azerbaijan and the Caucasus' largest city, Baku brings the old and the new, the East and the West colliding together in a particularly diverse and changing city. The skyline has become dominated by showpiece postmodern skyscrapers, their glassy facades mimicking the waters that shimmer before the coastal city. Underneath it all, a tour of Baku's World Heritage-listed old town reveals the city's historic core, with medieval neighborhoods, religious buildings, and regal architecture. After dark, visitors and locals mingle in the city's burgeoning nightlife scene. Add Baku and other destinations in Azerbaijan to your travel itinerary using our Azerbaijan road trip tool .

Where to stay in Baku

Baku's emphasis on architectural diversity--and its fondness for constructions that put all previous buildings to shame--has yielded a range of accommodations. Look no further than the waterfront high-rises for contemporary luxury, or take a peek at the more storied surrounding boulevards for 19th-century class, with grand hotels and stylish boutiques set in Baroque and neoclassical buildings. A smattering of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses lies throughout the city, particularly on side streets close to the main attractions and train stations.
