  • This place has the best panoramic view to the Baku bay. Local people and tourists as well are found of this place. If you wanna get some nice photos or enjoy city at night this is the right place.  more »
  • This is a lovely park for a one-hour stroll and a view of the STUNNING Flame towers. While the towers are most beautiful after dark, I wouldn't recommend visiting the park in those hours and the late ...  more »
  • In each city, at least in the capital is high point overlooking the entire city. In Baku, this Mountainous Park. Climbing once here, you will definitely want to repeat the visit. For example, if you're here during the day, you'll want to look at in the evening and the city from this point. In the park there is a café and restaurant, there is also an "Alley of martyrs" cemetery of dead victims of the January 20, 1990, "eternal fire"-built also in honor of the same victims. You can get here in three ways-by car, leave it and walk. The stairs to the top post, that runs the risk of not every, and a cable car. Enjoyable review all:)

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.
