Baku is a city of extremely sharp contrasts. Every step taken out the front door guaranteed to be an adventure.
Wonderful parks and alleys, wide avenues, majestic and modern buildings, squares and bridges are today the essential attributes of Azerbaijani capital. Incredible harmony of ancient and modern makes this city unique and beautiful.
The bustling metropolis is filled with modern skyscrapers that stand side by side with hundreds of ancient monuments.
Centuries-long history is reflected in its medieval landmarks, where the special place is given to the Old city called Icherisheher.
The Old City is a unique town within the city of Baku with its own infrastructure and residential communities. The fortress is located in the center of Baku along the coast of the Caspian Sea. The unique historic monuments and a wide range of tourism options make Icherisheher one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city.
Baku Boulevard is a place where you can enjoy the Caspian Sea and breathtaking night view of Baku.
Shopping malls, business centers, restaurants, tea houses are well worth seeing.
