Philharmonic Fountain Park, Baku

4.8
#2 of 25 in Parks in Azerbaijan
One of the oldest parks in Baku, Philharmonic Fountain Park serves as a favorite low-budget chill-out spot in the downtown area. Featuring a classy marble arch and a French-style Baroque fountain, the park slopes down to the Caspian Sea from the elegant Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Hall, built in 1912 in Italian Renaissance and German Rococo style with a few nods to oriental elements. Constantly bustling with activity, you can observe walkers, joggers, lovers sitting on benches, and camera crews making commercials in the park's scenic setting. Enjoy a view of the lake while humming along to the tunes coming out of the nearby philharmonic building. Our Baku tour itinerary site makes visiting Philharmonic Fountain Park and other Baku attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A pleasant place for a stroll. Palm trees, pine, Acacia, fountains. And a lot of wild parrots. Between the underground Baksovet (Icherishehir).

  • The Park is located in outside walls of the old city (Icheri Sheher), behind the building, near the hotel "Four season", beautiful architecture which give a special flavor to this attraction. This public park is a place of quiet rest in the times of the Russian Empire was called the Governor's Garden, so how can we loved to stroll the Governor. Here is very dense and beautiful flora, good lighting, various sculptures. In the center of the park lies one of the most beautiful fountains of Europe similar to the fountain of the place de la Concorde in Paris. Next to the large fountain you can rest, listen to classical music and to make beautiful pictures. The Park is adjacent to the Metro station "Icheri Sheher" entrance which resembles a glass pyramid in front of the Louvre. My advice, if you visit this place during the summer, dine in the restaurant, located in the courtyard of the Philharmonic Society (good cuisine, accompanied by pleasant music live).

  • Located near the Art Museum and the metro station, this haven of water, trees and birds is a beautiful relaxing area just outside the Old City Walls. The fountain itself is a bit much in terms of deco...  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.
