#20 of 78 in Things to do in Baku
Admire impressive minarets of Bibi-Heybat Mosque, a restored historical mosque at the entrance to the city from the airport side. Reopened in 2008, the mosque covers the site of an earlier 13th century mosque that housed the tomb of Ukeyma Khanum, a descendant of Muhammad. With its elaborately decorated interior of green and gold, the mosque features Shirvan architecture with three domes. The old mosque was known as "the mosque of Fatima," as called by French writer Alexander Dumas who traveled here in the 1840s. You can plan Baku trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

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.
