Baku Boulevard

Reviewed By Bean618 - Baku, Baki, Azerbaijan

There are lots of imported tropical and desert plants littering the flower beds on the bulvar. Along with many local cafes and snack stands, old fashioned carnival rides and fun free activities like giant chess sets, you can also find a mall with a grocery store, cleaners, and mainstream stores. When the weather is nice, sitting out with a beer and a snack is a nice weekend treat.

This place is stunning. It is very exciting that people who build it didn't use any nails or glues. And the trees in the yard are beautiful also. I felt that I am traveling in time!

Mud Volcanoes

Reviewed By swede1102 - Stockholm, Sweden

To get here is not easy. Although we hired a driver in Baku, he did not know how to get to the mud volcanoes. After asking a few locals and a surreal drive across the steppe (4WD highly recommended), we arrived at the volcanoes. This is a very strange phenomenon, and I thought it was really worth the effort to get here. The backdrop with the Caspian Sea is spectacular.

Philharmonic Fountain Park

Reviewed By B1714D - Belgrade, Serbia

This beautiful park is a nice resting spot just outside the old city walls, when you finished exploring the old town, on your way to the funicular leading up to the Upland park.
Out of many Fountains in Baku, this one seemed the most beautiful. During the Soviet times it was called the Governors Park.

Upland Park

Reviewed By B1714D - Belgrade, Serbia

As its name says this park is on a hill, in fact steep hill. To avoid a heavy climb I suggest taking a taxi up.
From the park there are excellent views of Flame Towers which are very close and whole Baku beneath you. Due to a hilly position park is winding and on cascades with many stairs, but very nice. Plenty of terrific photo ops. From the top there's around 30 min down to sea level, very pleasant walk.

Dagustu Park

Reviewed By I Nyoman A - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

What a Stunning view....
Impressed by the view from the park. It's totally cool, the panoramic view is awesome. Day visit either night visit are great, when you have day visit you can see the relaxing blue color from the sea and sky and green color from the trees spread around the city are perfect.
You probably could stay here for hours, so be ready with your snack and your drink since no shop (minimarket) but restaurant yes. Just before get the site there is a small shop which will be good for you to load your snack supply before heading the place.
There are funicular that will take you up, but that time not working, so walk, stepping the stairs is the cheapest option, or just take taxi that will offer you to get on the site.
