Get a 360-view of the city and the vast expanse of water at Ferris Wheel, a 60 m (200 ft) tall observation wheel erected on a wharf protruding into the Caspian Sea. With a total of 30 cabins, each of which can hold eight persons, this white Dutch-made structure takes visitors on a 30-minute ride overlooking the city and the lake.

  • Beautiful view on Baku from the highest point of the wheel. Well, that in a stall there is a climate-control system, and it was cold. Pleasure is not cheap, 15 manat circle in the 5-7 minutes. Feeling gorgeous.

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.
