Baku Boulevard, Baku

4.8
Running parallel to the capital's seafront, Baku Boulevard represents a modern hub of cultural gatherings, ceremonies, public events, and celebrations. The well-maintained promenade dates from 1909, when 20th-century oil magnates built lavish mansions along the Caspian shoreline. The 3.75 km (2.3 mi) street stretches between two of the city's main squares, passing the old city along the way. A stroll along the boulevard reveals many landmarks, including multi-story shopping malls, an amusement park, a 5D cinema, a Ferris wheel, and museums. Rest and enjoy fine dining in one of the many surrounding cafes and restaurants. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Baku holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Baku Boulevard and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Primorsky Boulevard in Baku is an excellent place for walks. Sea, mass statues and interesting places, cafes, restaurants, open-air mall and Mall, flowers, trees, including exotic Seibu excellent that the plates called our dear Baobab, but refers to malvam and blooms yellow "gibiskusovymi" flowers, cacti and other exotic. Huge, spacious Boulevard, it is not crowded, despite the considerable amount of walking, running, sitting by the sea and under the trees.

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.
