Baku
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: examine the collection at Heydar Aliyev Center, explore the ancient world of Ateshgah - Fire Temple, look for gifts at Menzer Hajiyeva Showroom, and don't miss a visit to Fountain Square.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Baku trip planner.

Milwaukee, USA to Baku is an approximately 20-hour flight. Traveling from Milwaukee to Baku, you'll lose 10 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Milwaukee in June, things will get a bit warmer in Baku: highs are around °F and lows about °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Gabala.

If you're fed up of the concrete jungle, take a trip to Gabala for the perfect getaway.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Sat): admire the sheer force of Yeddi Gozel Waterfall, get in on the family fun at Gabaland, and then get outside with Tufandag Winter Summer Resort. Here are some ideas for day two: get curious at Gabala Archaeological Center, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chotari Albanian-Udi Church, thenhave some family-friendly fun at Gabala Shooting Club, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Nohur Lake.

Plan my Gabala trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
