Welcome to Baku

Cosmopolitan and at times chaotic, Baku has a bit of everything. On the western shores of the Caspian Sea, Baku is the largest city in Caucasus and it’s developing at a rapid pace.

Explore the old, the new and everything in between – and learn a bit about Azeri culture and cuisine along the way.

Top things to see and do

  • Learn about Azeri rug-making on a guided tour of the Carpet Museum.
  • Catch a show at the Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre – or simply admire the building’s stunning facade.
  • Wander through the old walled city (Içeri Seher) and get lost in the magnificent maze of narrow alleyways.
  • Step back through the ages at the Azerbaijan History Museum and be awed by the building’s extravagant interior.
  • Take an afternoon stroll along Baku Boulevard, followed by a spot of twilight shopping at Fountain Square.

Treat yourself to some sweet nut pie (shekerbura) – one of Azerbaijan’s many culinary delights.

Tips for travellers

For a panoramic view of the capital, scale the spiralling stairs of Maiden’s Tower in the old walled city.
