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). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Baku Old City, take in panoramic vistas at Flame Towers, delve into the distant past at Ateshgah Fire Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Palace of the Shirvanshahs.
