City of Winds

The capital of Azerbaijan and the Caucasus' largest city, Baku brings the old and the new, the East and the West colliding together in a particularly diverse and changing city. The skyline has become dominated by showpiece postmodern skyscrapers, their glassy facades mimicking the waters that shimmer before the coastal city. Underneath it all, a tour of Baku's World Heritage-listed old town reveals the city's historic core, with medieval neighborhoods, religious buildings, and regal architecture. After dark, visitors and locals mingle in the city's burgeoning nightlife scene. Take a look at our Azerbaijan holiday planner to refine the details of your trip to Baku.

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.
