  • Being from a country full of ruins dating back thousands of years, I found this place normal, but it is still worh a visit if you are in Baku. The view from here is amazing as you can cover old and modern Baku in one camera frame. The family photo we took their was very professional and I really recommend it.
  • Amazing, but it was strange to see masjed without crescent 🤷🏻‍♀️
