    Very nice wheel. Quality cabins with air conditioning. 6-m we were placed in a booth and has remained place. Rode day and night. I liked the ride in the evening, as night city in light of electric lights is especially beautiful. Attention! Sometimes, passing by the wheel you might think that it's not working, but it's not! The wheel does not rotate constantly! It stops for passengers, as well as stands where there are no riders. Many pass by and think that the wheel does not work. So we thought, until it came closer. Interestingly, planting is carried out directly in 5 cabins-each departs separate ladder. Subsequent landing comes exactly on the same track where you were). Price adult ticket-5 manat.

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.
