    Spirit of art. Well known Hadid architecture have done great job. Very cool design you feel that you are doing at the space ship. Recommended to visit.

    Stunning, both the exterior and the interior. You may be wondering if it's worth to pay for the entrance ticket - yes it is, building is great also from inside. In the late afternoon good light for taking pictures

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.
