#4 of 40 in Parks in Azerbaijan
Dagustu Park offers reportedly the best panoramic views of the city and the bay. You can reach the park by climbing a long flight of stairs or by taking a scenic ride on a funicular, which is free of charge. A cafe on the top boasts an observation terrace from which you can enjoy the breeze and see Baku's engineering masterpieces Flame Towers, or head on to the Martyrs' Lane--a memorial to Azerbaijani people killed by Soviet troops in 1990.

  • This place has to be visited during the night with the lights. A lovely walk with so much to see and the flaming towers in the background.  more »
  • After crossing flame towers to the land of fire statue, you will have a beautiful view to the beach and the city. Carpet museum can be seen as well. TV Tower and new Mall is also nearby.  more »
  • I came to this park after the heroes Tombstone and the Eternal Flame memorial. In fact, the two parks are connected together. From here you can see the beauty of the city and the sea. This is because the part of the library is built on the mountains and on the coast. If you think the Hong Kong view from the top of the mountain is great, it's super. After coming here, I would like to try to ride down the coast cables. But it doesn't run. So I had to walk down the stairs and down the hill.

  • This is a “must visit” place in Baku with one of the best views at the city. The park and the observation deck are very well taken care of, modern (renovated) and clean. It’s a great point to take photos and videos and just enjoy the view from the above. You can also see many other tourists as this is one of the most recommended sightseeing stops in Baku.
  • Great place with beautiful views of the city. Good place to visit at sunset.
  • One of the best spot in Baku. You can see the Flame Towers, Caspian Sea and the Baku Skyline. A must-visit!
  • Highland Park, located in the heart of Baku and one of the favorite leisure places of the local residents, is regarded as one of the most beautiful parks of the capital city for a long time. Another commonly known name of the park among people is Viewing Square. In Soviet era, this park was named after Sergei Kirov. The one particular reason that makes the Highland Park unique is that it has a panorama looking over the city, Baku bay, Seaside National Park stretching along the bay. That explains the reason the park was called “Highland”. Back in 30s of XX century when the general layout of Baku was in progress, this very fact was assumed as a basis and it was taken into account that the Highland Park built in this area would play an important role in general architectural composition. The park was built in the place of the old graveyard based on the design of architect Ilyin using the rich variety of limestone of the quarries of Baku. By the way, another old name of the park – the English park - is related to this graveyard. It is said that in 1920s, English soldiers who came to Baku after the Russian Emperor dethroned were buried here along with the victims of March events of 1918.Azerbaijan Independence Museum, Martyrs’ Lane where lie the victims of Black January of 1990 and those who were killed in Nagorno Karabakh war are located in the Highland Park.
