  • On our recent visit to Baku we visited Martyrs' Lane. This is a memorial to many of those killed on "Black January" in 1990 when Soviet forces invaded Baku.  more »
  • I would encourage to visit this place to pay tribute to the country's independence. In addition it is very nice and a beautiful park. And from the observation deck of a beautiful view of the city. And if you're still in the evening and lovely views of the Fiery towers. ride on the funicular can be More free. Easier to descend to directly reach the Boulevard and the city centre.
