Philharmonic Park, Baku

4.8
#3 of 36 in Parks in Azerbaijan
One of the oldest parks in Baku, Philharmonic Park serves as a favorite low-budget chill-out spot in the downtown area. Featuring a classy marble arch and a French-style Baroque fountain, the park slopes down to the Caspian Sea from the elegant Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Hall, built in 1912 in Italian Renaissance and German Rococo style with a few nods to oriental elements. Constantly bustling with activity, you can observe walkers, joggers, lovers sitting on benches, and camera crews making commercials in the park's scenic setting. Enjoy a view of the lake while humming along to the tunes coming out of the nearby philharmonic building. Our Baku tour itinerary site makes visiting Philharmonic Park and other Baku attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The park was established beginning in 1830; ship's captains coming from Iran were asked to bring a sack of soil to add to it. Over time the park full of trees established here in the sandy part of the city. Later, trees had brought here from Italy, Turkey and Lankaran. Mulberry, pine tree, acacia, and rose bushes planted here. In fact, we’re lucky that we are able to see the park closely. If we came here 110 years ago we wouldn’t come inside. Because when the concert hall was built, it also worked as Casino and only oil barons, millionaires and wealthy governors allowed to come here.
