Miniature Books, Baku
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
See the charming collection of Miniature Books, a museum that displays thousands of tiny books from different parts of the world. Open since 2002, the museum was established by Zarifa Salahova, who had collected miniature publications for years. Admire a large variety of miniscule books divided into a range of themes, from Soviet and Azerbaijani classics to international masterpieces. All of them are readable, although you might need a magnifying glass for the especially small specimens. Highlights of the museum include a 13th-century edition, as well as astoundingly small works that measure just 2 mm (0.08 in) in length and width. Arrange to visit Miniature Books and other attractions in Baku using our Baku travel itinerary maker.

  • Entrance to this private museum is free. The owners of the Museum are clearly his party enthusiastically, collecting worldwide interesting exhibits. In particular, I am absolutely subdued miniature rack with complete collection of the writings of Shakespeare. Here, collected a lot of miniature books, starting with the very old publications and ending with the modern. Keeper of the Museum readily and very interesting-tells about the exhibits of the Museum. Here enjoy children and adults. Located just one minute from the Palace of the Shirvanshahs. Museum until 5 pm, Monday-day off.
