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.
Baku is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: see the interesting displays at Heydar Aliyev Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highland Park, make a trip to Yanardag, and explore the ancient world of Ateshgah Fire Temple.

For ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Baku trip maker site.

Doha, Qatar to Baku is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Doha to Baku due to the time zone difference. Expect much colder weather when traveling from Doha in December: highs in Baku hover around 10°C, while lows dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to drive to Gobustan.
