The Fire Temple of Baku is a historical landmark that is visited by all tourists coming to Azerbaijan. This ancient sanctuary was built in the 17th century on the site of an even older Zoroastrian temple. For centuries, it has served as a place of pilgrimage for Hindus, Sikhs, and other followers of Eastern religions. Visitors can view the temple's impressive pentagonal structure and learn about its rich history.
Yanardag, or Burning Mountain, is a natural wonder that you will see after visiting the Fire Temple. This unique geological phenomenon features a fiery line of flame surrounding the base of a hill. The flames are caused by the constant release of natural gas from the underlying soils and have been burning for millions of years.
Before the start of the second part of this unforgettable excursion, you will enjoy a delicious dinner of national cuisine in a cozy restaurant hidden among the picturesque houses of the Old City of Baku. After dinner, you will embark on an unforgettable trip to Baku Mountain Park, the first stop of the evening tour.
Upland Park is a must-see for its historical significance and stunning views. You will stroll through the park, learn a lot about the past, and admire the impressive illumination of the city from the observation deck. After the visit, return to a comfortable transport and get to the next stop — a favorite place among citizens and guests called Baku Boulevard.
Baku Boulevard, also known as Seaside Park, is a 16-kilometer promenade along Baku Bay. Although it is impossible to explore the entire boulevard in a two-hour excursion, a visit to Mini Venice, a park complex stylized as the legendary European city, will give you a joyful viewing experience. Among the canals, bridges, and gondolas, visitors can enjoy a relaxing stroll and learn about the architecture of Baku, including the Mugham Center and the Carpet Museum.
The House of the Government of Azerbaijan, a masterpiece of Stalinist architecture, will be the next attraction you see on this tour. Our professional guide will tell you its fascinating history as you pass by. After all, this is an impressive structure, built over 16 years by Nazi prisoners of war.
The Heydar Aliyev Center, a cultural and educational center designed by Zaha Hadid, will be the next attraction you see on this tour. This building is a stunning example of modern world architecture, and its unique design is sure to impress you. And from the park complex surrounding this center, there is a stunning view of the city.
