Night in Baku is like a bright, revived picture.
After the construction boom since the beginning of 20th century there are many new buildings, museums, office buildings, hotels, skyscrapers emerged in the city. Our tour begins at the Upland Park, which offers a magnificent view of the city, that has a completely new look by night, lit up with glaring lights. Houses and parks are wearing an evening gown to give an atmosphere of holiday for inhabitants and guests of the capital.
Upland Park is located on a hill in the western part of the city. This is the best place to see the city and the Baku Bay. The architecture of the capital is very eclectic; it is a combination of different styles and influences, both Eastern and Western.
Coming up next on the program the guests will be able to stroll at the Baku promenade (Boulevard), which is one of the attractions of Baku as well. It is a favorite vacation spot for Baku citizens and guests of the city. In 2009 the Boulevard celebrated its 100 anniversary.
Each Baku citizen will prove that the main places for promenade in Baku are Nizami Street and Fountain square.
In the middle of the XIX century, since a favorable location and an abundance of shops, the street was called "Marketplace" or “Torgovaya”. And now, many decades people of Baku continue to call as “Torgovaya” a pedestrian part of Nizami street, closed for public traffic from Fountain Square to the Rashid Behbudov street.
Fountain Square also has a long history, and in the beginning of the XIX century was called the Square. After numerous changes in 2010, the area acquired its present appearance.
In particular, original fountains, pavilions and kiosks were reconstructed, the existing vegetation to preserve and the area of green space was increased.
