Miniature Books, Baku

(4.4/5 based on 180 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.
