  • Amazing structure. One of Baku's modern landmark. "I love Baku" photo stand is located in front of this building. They have two museum inside of which one is all about vintage car collections. Landscape around the property is well maintained. Also, they have a wide area for parking.
  • Very iconic. I have been to a lot of places but I would say this is the most beautiful and unique building I have even seen in my life.
  • This is the perfect place to understand the contribution a person and the honors a person has got for behalf of his nation. Beautifully structured architectural brilliance.
  • Amazing building. Thanks to Zaha Hadid for this awesome piece of art. Good place for relaxation. Minimalistic and charming surroundings. Beautiful white colour connects with green lawn in modern construction.
  • Amazingly designed, good to bring kinds . Musiums under the building are so lovely. Architecture concept of this centre fully amazed . Really really enjoyed here with my hostel friends.

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.
