BAKU, AZERBAIJAN - JUNE 12: A general view of the race action during the F1 Grand Prix of

Baku is a city of two halves. Affectionately nicknamed the ‘City of Winds’ this modern, forward-thinking metropolis - and capital - of Azerbaijan sits on the shores of the Caspian Sea (the world’s largest inland body of water).

It is criss-crossed with rich history that would perhaps ordinarily sit at odds with the contemporary elegance the city exudes, but instead the past is woven through every aspect of life here with ease.
