The capital of Azerbaijan and the Caucasus' largest city, Baku brings the old and the new, the East and the West colliding together in a particularly diverse and changing city.
Baku is known for historic sites, museums, nature, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, don't miss a visit to Fountain Square, get a new perspective on nature at Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape, and steep yourself in history at Baku Old City.
