    Where to go?

    Baku prides itself on offering something for everyone. Amongst other things, visitors can explore the historic delights of the Old City (Icheri Sheher), and in particular the Palace of the Shirvanshahs and Maiden Tower enclosed within it walls; take in the plethora of boutiques along Nizami Street (one of the most expensive streets in the world); marvel at the multitude of water features in Fountain Square; visit Megafon, Europe’s largest indoor amusement arcade; take the funicular to Upland Park to enjoy clear views of the city; or simply stroll along Baku’s picturesque seaside boulevard, where you’re flanked on one side by the Caspian Sea and on the other by the city’s modern skyline, including the distinctive Flame Towers.

    Extended stay

    Those staying on in Baku would be well advised to take a trip out of town to the Ateshgah or ‘Fire Temple’ which is an ancient religious temple in a suburb of the city called Surakhani. The site was once a place of Zoroastrian fire worship as natural fires used to spontaneously burn there as gas emerged from seven (now-exhausted) natural surface vents. A little further out of the city is Qobustan, another UNESCO site, which is home to famous rock paintings and mud volcanoes - another must see for culture vultures.
