Fountain Square, Baku

4.3
Admire dozens of Soviet-era water features at Fountain Square. Last renovated in 2010, the modern square hosts many public events, celebrations, and festivals, and remains one of most popular gathering places in the city. Stroll along to view the fountain installations with shiny silver spheres, and then soak in the local atmosphere as you visit the surrounding restaurants, cafes, shops, and hotels. Consider combining your visit with a nearby literature museum, which has a lovely facade with inlaid statues.

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.
