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 Baku with an excursion to Gobustan State Reserve in Gobustan--about 1h 5 min away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, examine the collection at Heydar Aliyev Center, stroll the grounds of Alley of Martyrs, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

Enjoy the Rustic Resorts and Relax in Healing Spas
