National Flag Square, Baku

(3.7/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
Take a turn around National Flag Square, a spacious seafront plaza dominated by a massive flagpole. Designed by David Chambers and completed in 2010, the 162 m (531 ft) standard ranks among the tallest in the world, and boasts an enormous flag of Azerbaijan visible from almost anywhere in the city. You can reach the square on a long, relaxing walk along the waterfront, but the flagpole area usually remains closed to the general public.

  • Crossed the road from the hotel "Four seasons" to the Primorsky Boulevard and walked him to the State flag square is not less than 20 minutes. Here you can rent a bike-so walk will take place faster. Climb to the flag on the steps fail, strictly abided by. On the way to wrap the square on the Ferris wheel, where no special beauty from above does not promise. Well-groomed Park area near the square, near-Crystal Palace, closed during the Christmas holidays. In General, a point of interest left the impression of a deserted zone can not walk in the winter season along the coast where fresh breeze will be visible even when the full calm. Worth the visit-for the sake of checkmarks and a photo on the background makrostjaga.

  • A huge flag! As for me it shows the immense love of the people to their homeland! Same great! Was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the Azerbaijanis!

  • The flag and surrounding boulevard are well worth a visit. The flag is one of the largest in the world. Good photo opportunity.
