Baku

— 2 nights

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.
Change things up with a short trip to Gobustan State Reserve in Gobustan (about 1h 5 min away). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, enjoy breathtaking views from Flame Towers, explore the different monuments and memorials at Alley of Martyrs, and don't miss a visit to Fountains Square.

Plan my trip to Baku with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Mumbai, India to Baku is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time to Azerbaijan Standard Time, which is usually a -1.5 hour difference. Traveling from Mumbai in February, expect Baku to be much colder, temps between 9°C and 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) to allow time to drive to Sheki.
