Fans are expecting a magnificent Formula 1 show in Baku, says Victoria, a tourist from Australia.
“Baku is a very beautiful city, perhaps, one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to,” she told Trend June 18, adding the city is clean and people are responsive and are trying to help.
Victoria says she would like to return to Azerbaijan and visit other cities of the country.
Azerbaijan is hosting the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe for the first time. The event started on June 17 and will end on June 19. The Baku circuit, which is slightly over six kilometers, will have the racers to go 51 laps. Overall, 11 teams, two drivers in each, will compete in the race.
The specially constructed street circuit will see F1 cars race around the stunning downtown area of Baku, incorporating its UNESCO-protected old city – Icheri Sheher historical-architectural reserve – as well as its modern skyline and beautiful Caspian Sea promenade.
