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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Dreamland Golf Club and Nizami Street/Torgovaya. Head to Park Bulvar Baku and Ali Shamsi Studiofor some retail therapy. Step out of Baku with an excursion to Mud Volcanoes in Gobustan--about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: ponder the design of Philharmonic Park, examine the collection at Museum of Miniature Books, don't miss a visit to Bibi-Heybat Mosque, and pause for some photo ops at Sculpture Girl on Bench.
