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.
Attractions like Baku Old City and Flame Towers make great kid-friendly stops. The adventure continues: go for a walk through Baku Boulevard, examine the collection at Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum, take in the dramatic natural features at Yanardag, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of History of Azerbaijan.

To plan Baku vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

A holiday in Azerbaijan allows intrepid travelers to discover a history-steeped country sitting at the crossroads of Southeastern Europe and Southwest Asia, an area once controlled by a succession of ancient empires. With its dual Eurasian character, Azerbaijan remains a highly intriguing destination, with tourism one of the top contributors to the country's booming economy. Many begin their tour of Azerbaijan in World Heritage-listed Baku, a cosmopolitan city boasting innovative architecture and a well-preserved historic core. A short drive out of this thriving capital, you can explore timeless villages surrounded by thick orchards and flanked by the majestic Caucasus Mountains.
