#4 of 14 in Museums in Azerbaijan
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • The "museum" is more like a room with lots of miniature books in different languages. No need to spend more than 5 minutes in there, but it's still nice to see all the books, and escape the hot summer...  more »

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.
