#16 of 78 in Things to do in Baku
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.

    It is the natural continuation of the waterfront Bulevar at the end is placed the flag. He doesn't deserve to go there specifically. If you have the promenade you can see but in Baku there are many high sights to see.

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.
