Baku

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.
When in Baku, make a side trip to see Gobustan State Reserve in Gobustan, approximately Gobustan away. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Heydar Aliyev Center, take in panoramic vistas at Flame Towers, go for a walk through Baku Boulevard, and contemplate the long history of Baku Old City.
