Baku, Azerbaijan


Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is located on the coast of the Caspian Sea and it is the largest city in the Caucasus. Its warm temperatures have make Baku one of the most prominent tourist destinations to travel to all year round and there is a great variety of accommodation offers to suit all tastes and pockets.

The old Town of Baku is one of the most interesting sites. Surrounded by a fortress you can find the Maiden’s Tower, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, which is considered to be the landmark of Baku and it attracts hundreds of tourists for its magnificent architecture. The majority of monuments and attractions are located in the Icheri-Sheher Fortress, where you will have the opportunity of admiring its ancient mosques, the Market Square or the Baths of Hadji-Haib and Hassym-bek.
If you are planning to book your hotel in this fascinating city, you musnt miss one of the most popular areas of the city: Primorksy Boulevard. Located along the sea shore, this picturesque boulevard is packed with cinemas, restaurants, shops and fountains. From there, we recommend you to take the cable car and get to Nagorny Park, from where you will have the opportunity of admiring the breath taking views of the city. A boat trip along Baku Bay is also very popular among tourists since you will have the opportunity of learning about the history and legends that surround this mysterious sea.
Baku has also an interesting cultural offer and if you are staying in one of the city’s hotels, we recommend you to visit some of its museums and art galleries, such as the Azeri National Costume Museum, the Taghiyev History Museum or the Arts Museum. The Home of Jafar Jabbarli is also worth visiting.
