  • Tourist facility, convenient to climb from the carpet Museum to Nagorny Park. 5 minutes along the way and you're at the top! This event is worth 50 qapik (polmanata), about 17 rubles. Until a certain time the funicular was free

  • Was the day of departure (4 January) and we decided to visit the remaining attractions. Came to the chairlift. It worked! There is no queue. Price, purely symbolic, 1 manat for two one way. Sat through 3 minutes gone. In certain places up a nice view of the city, but I must say, this is not the best way to see the city from a height. More appropriate simply to hike up the mountain or for checkboxes on the visit. On verkh climbed for 4 minutes. Made a couple of photos of the city and drove down (the interval between sending 10 minutes), as this area is well known to us, we lived here 2 days in hotel Fairmont Baku, walked down the alley of martyrs, and on Nagorny Park. Visit the funicular is worth, at least for a change ....

  • In a new year's vacation fare cost 50 qapik, or polmanata (1 manat-approximately 35 roubles). The funicular travels with a time intervals, so we had to defend the queue and wait 10-15 minutes in the cable car with glass walls. Total wait time was much longer than the trip for a few minute timeframe: descended from the alley of martyrs to Seaside Park in the District Museum of carpets and local Venice because tired of walking. Of course, compare the trip to Baku funicular with a trip on the tram to Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, for example, incorrectly: as stated, not the entertainment. But at times a ride with your child with comfort in a glass carriage can be completely.
