  • If you are coming by car, the first stop is near the cash register where we paid for 6 AZN per person and 1 for parking. When we arrived at the place, the guard checked the tickets and left alone with the Park. The territory consists of a fenced track ropes with paintings of prohibitive signs (do not touch the hands, the feet are not set). Local is not always ostanavivaet. Offers its services guides who will point out, are not always notable pictures. "Main" clip art "podnovljajut" obviously that raises questions in the originality of the rest. Despite the fact that the total area of the big plot is allowed a couple of hundred meters through 10-15 minutes we had to go back into the machine. It turned out that went much longer than were there.

  • It's really worthy to visit this site. As you will see on the map in the museum, there are not many places like this one around the world. The museum from its exterior doesn't looks like many things can be seen inside, but you will be surprised once you enter it.
  • Great view of offshore oil platforms
  • Quite an interesting place, you can climb paths, explore rock painting, visit the Museum.
