Baku is a city of winds and contrasts

Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan, which is called the “city of winds”, and all because it is located on the shores of the Caspian Sea, from where strong winds blow from time to time. The color of the old city is surprisingly combined with modernist architectural solutions. The original national cuisine will satisfy the needs of even sophisticated gourmets, while the warm sun and cozy beaches will appeal to lovers of a relaxed holiday in a sun lounger. However, do not miss the chance to see all the interesting places that Baku is rich in. There are experiences for people of all ages and interests.

Baku is one of the largest cities in the Caucasus. The population of the city is more than 2 million people, and dozens of pedestrian streets, public spaces, park areas and places for walking have been created in the capital for their comfortable living and pastime. Our guide to Baku will become your reliable assistant when planning a trip to the capital of Azerbaijan.
The capital of Azerbaijan is positioned not only as a historical and business center of the country, but also successfully plays the role of a cultural citadel. The city has dozens of museums and art galleries that deserve special attention. The most popular are National Museum of the History of Azerbaijan, where you can immerse yourself in the life and culture of the country, as well as the Gala Open Air Museum, which can be visited absolutely free of charge.

     The Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Society and the Azerbaijan Drama Theatre, which show visitors the best works and performances, can be called the centers of cultural life in Baku. One of the oldest theaters in Baku is the Russian Drama Theatre, which opened back in 1920. The modern repertoire of the theater includes performances based on the works of the classics of Russian and Soviet literature, as well as performances for children. The rich cultural life of the capital opens up a full list of activities for the whole family!


Baku is a diverse city, and even in such a large metropolis you can find corners of nature for pleasant walks in the shade of trees. You can fully immerse yourself in a green oasis in the Park of Officers, where winding cozy paths and graceful poplar trees entwined with ivy await you. Cute statues and figurines became a separate pride of the park: children playing, a photographer, a chess player, flower sellers, a teahouse master and many others. Pleasant surprises will meet you here and there while you enjoy a leisurely walk in the thick of green spaces.

It is also pleasant to escape from the hot sun on a hot summer day in the Central Botanical Garden, which has a collection of more than 2,000 species of trees, shrubs and flowering plants.

Another beautiful, shady and green park. Nizami is located a stone's throw from the Old City. It is one of the oldest public parks in Baku, where you can have a good time and get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
