  • Beautiful square with great cafes and restaurants
  • The best place for staying in Baku city, near the old city of Baku, near beach park, and near many tourist attractions in Baku city. With many restaurants, coffee shops, clubs And people are there all days and nights, the city never sleeps there
  • Try to visit it early in the morning before all the tourists flood the place. Every time you turn a corner, you find a lovely alley with small balconies with a lot of decorated flowers and plants. People are friendly and laid back. Take your time yo walk around, absord the atmosphere and probably sit down for a cup of coffee, a glass of beer or some ice cream before heading out for Boulevard.
