    Good afternoon! At the checkout you can rent audio guides (surcharge). Almost all speak Russian. Introductory tour into the world of creating carpets. In the halls of the masters who work in live produce carpets. A fascinating spectacle. You can zasmotretsja on the work of these artists. Big store of souvenirs. But, honestly the expensive. There is a carpet shop, right in the Museum.

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.
