The Rising Star

Overview

Baku has a fire in its belly. After all, it is the capital of Azerbaijan, the land of fire.

Straddling East Europe and West Asia, the former Soviet city was fairly underrated and unknown to travellers, until it leveraged the oil boom to drive its development. It appointed architects from Western Europe to design buildings and expand the city. Today, sleek glass buildings, good infrastructure and the presence of international brands represent the modern face of Baku. The city’s glittering skyline is complemented by the Baku Boulevard running along the shore of the Caspian Sea. No wonder, Baku hosted Eurovision Song Contest, the European Games and the Grand Prix amongst many others.

However, Baku has not left its past behind. There is a certain old-world charm to the Old City of Icherisheher that brings alive the history and medieval architecture of Baku. The Azerbaijani cuisine is a refreshing combination of Irani, Turkish and Georgian influences and a treat for your taste buds.

Every moment in Baku will leave you impressed.
