  • Walk on the Ferris wheel is finite is interesting but very short. Only about 7 minutes. This is possible because besides us was filled with still only 1 cubicle and no other stops landing-landing people circle passed very quickly. Price 1 ticket for the end of October 2017 year amounted to 5.

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.
