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.
Step out of the city life by going to Gobustan State Reserve and Yanardag. You'll explore and learn at Heydar Aliyev Center and Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum. Dedicate the 10th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, get a taste of the local shopping with Museum of Modern Art, make a trip to Baku Boulevard, and explore the ancient world of Ateshgah Fire Temple.
