  • Baku is a city with some of the most iconic examples of world modern architecture, as the breathtaking "Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center" or the "Flame Towers". Its "Aquatic Palace" is another landmark.....  more

  • A marvellous swimming pool for swimming amateurs. The perfect place for kids to start learning swimming. If you don't like swimming or it doesn't suit you, you can try yourself in every kind of sports there. There are courses for football, judo, gymnastics etc. (for kids, for adults I am not sure). For adults, however, I know there are activities like gym, yoga, crossfit etc. After your training you can easily go and sit in a silent restaurant on the second floor. You can buy from there food and drinks. They offer you lunch from 12pm till 3pm. I really recommend this sports centre for all age ranges. However, prices are a bit high.
  • There was no supervisor for Kids in the morning sessions unless I gave a complaint. The guardian lady like a horror movie star "explained" each parent must have it's own entry card otherwise she won't allow me inside. Entry cards they sell for 5azn each. According to their strict regulations for entering to the premises each parent or anyone who guides the child must obtain those cards. However they don't care about kids at all inside the building. So I found it quite risky to visit this place.... 😬
