  • Nizami Street located in the city centre, is central and has a length of more than 3 km, so that a thorough examination of the streets with a visit to the shops, and there are more than enough, may take more than one hour. Nizami Street architecture (Trading) is a combination of various styles and directions 19 and 20 century. There are a lot of interesting, beautiful, historic, important buildings, such as the Azerbaijan State academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, tsum, the House where lived Muslim Magomaev, merchants House, Tagievyh House where lived academician Lev Landau, House of petroleum, the Azerbaijan National Library and many others. Also on the street are the embassies of some European countries, banks, hotels, cafes, clubs, restaurants. So this street is important and plays a fairly important role in the life of the city. A lot of people here, both for residents and tourists, even in January, when we visited this street.

  • Beautiful, expensive, boring. I'm more than describe this street can't. at the end of the street you can sit in cafes, bars and restaurants. For some reason there is no "living sculptures", no cartoonists, neither magicians nor musicians ... Yes bench, Yes, fountains, but no more. Possible effect not quite successful period, late October-early November.

  • No sooner had come to Baku, I immediately led to the Trade. The inhabitants call it anyway. In the evening very nicely. Many shops, cafés, shops, trade patterns, constantly many local and visitors. Everything moves, glows, but vanity is not felt. Interesting walk, look at the passers-by, not all shops and cafés here road.
