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.

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.
