    In Baku, I manage to pass twice on the rack railway. Comfortable caravan, from which rise and descent enjoys beautiful views of the city. The only thing that depressed, it is incomprehensible to the cable-operating time. In the evening, he shall, before 10:00 pm work but often closes earlier, which had to descend the stairs.

    This is a great way to see the city from a high vantage point. The fare is so cheap only 0.50 Manat each way. You can catch it at the square on Neftchilar Avenue (The station is called “Bahram Gur”)an...  more »

    From the observation deck of upland Park beautiful view of the Baku Bay. And the best way to get to the site-climb back on the rack railway. Yes from a booth funicular too open very interesting species. And in the evening better and descend on the funicular railway, because in some places descend in the dark-slightly extreme!))))

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.
