  • Carpet Museum in Baku. The woman in the photograph remarkable. Already finished work, collecting tools, but noticing my interest started talking and show what does and why. I saw the magic! The Museum building has the shape of a roll of carpet. Strapping roll! :) And "modern" carpets with photo realistic oil drilling and the Soviet cosmic motifs particularly hard to get stuck in your head. Among other things, this Museum "European level" how proudly zajavlchjut. In Evropkah was not, but the prices are exactly the European as at the State Hermitage Museum and the Tretyakov Gallery. A little expensive for exposure to 40 minutes on an audio guide (which generally catch nothing). Staff also prices are proud BTW.
