The City of Eternal Flames, the City of Winds

A truly contemporary city criss-crossed by history, Baku offers everything from the modern elegance of the Flame Towers to the medieval UNESCO-listed Old City at its core.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Heydar Aliyev Center and Baku Boulevard. Step out of Baku with an excursion to Gobustan State Reserve in Gobustan--about 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Baku Old City, stop by Menzer Hajiyeva Showroom, take in panoramic vistas at Flame Towers, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Alley of Martyrs.
