  • ..House museum of the legend of Azerbaijan luminaries of Azerbaijani jazz music Vagif Mustafazade very atmospheric place entrance is free, at least local residents didn’t take money from us and said that entrance is free ..

It is useful for visiting both local residents and foreign guests of the city.👌
