BAKU AND BEYOND

Despite most people never dreaming of traveling to this part of the world, Azerbaijan provides those who do with a fulfilling adventure. Thousands of years long heritage beautifully combined with deeply-rooted traditions. While Baku features the medieval Icheri Sheher with the mysterious Maiden Tower forms its focal point, a late 19th-century Inner City with architectural styles from the Russian Empire and a modern skyline complete the layered appearance of the city. Highlights include Bake Boulevard hugging the Caspian Sea, Flame Towers and the shopping district along Nizami Street. Not only will visitors find a selection of hotels to suit any budget but a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and cafés.
