Baku Night Tour
From 40 ₼
Baku tour in the evening under the guidance of a guide from the tour operator Azerbaijan Travel International is a three–hour car and walking tour through the central streets of the city and its iconic places.
Baku looks especially elegant in the night lights of the city illumination and the promenade in its center is a close acquaintance with it, bringing love to the city and its inhabitants. Sights, views of the city, the guide’s stories about history, architecture, urban legends and just a good mood – all this is given to tourists by our company, the best travel agency in the country.
A cozy restaurant is hidden among the picturesque ruins of the historical quarters of Baku, which are called Icheri Sheher (Inner City). Here, to the sounds of live folk music, guests enjoy an exquisite dinner of national cuisine. After that, after drinking a cup of tea with Baku baklava, they get up from the table and go for a car ride. It leads to the Baku Mountain - the first stop of the Baku Night tour.
The main Baku Park is located at the top point of the business center of the city. During a walk through its alleys, guests will learn about the most important events related to it, get acquainted with the sights surrounding it and get the opportunity to admire the night lights of Baku from the best observation deck of the city. The park, which was founded at the beginning of the 20-th century, will inspire you with fascinating stories and oxygen, which is abundantly released by the park flora.
Then - back to the tour bus and on a trip through the night streets to the second stop of the tour.
The Seaside Park, or as it is otherwise called Baku Boulevard, stretching for 16 km along the Baku Bay is quite large and it is completely impossible to explore it within a two-hour tour. Our tour runs along that part of the boulevard called Little Venice.
This park complex is stylized as the legendary European city of Venice, where the main attributes are numerous city water channels, bridges thrown over them and gondolas on their waters. It's the same in Little Venice... only a small one. A tour of this part of the boulevard is a peaceful walk along the banks of the canals, stories about Baku and acquaintance with the most prominent examples of Baku architecture, of which there are a fair number on the Neftciler Avenue adjacent to the boulevard, one of the main streets of the city.
Walking through this amazing park, you will immediately recognize one of the architectural masterpieces of the Stalin era - the Government House of Soviet Azerbaijan. It took almost 16 years to build this gigantic structure when Azerbaijan was under Soviet rule. Moreover, historical evidence shows that German prisoners of war were used to build this huge structure.
The last stop of Baku Night tour is a visit to the surroundings of one of the outstanding examples of modern world architecture – the cultural and educational center named after H. Aliyev. The building, which in 2014 won the international competition "The Best Architectural Design on the Planet" and the original park complex adjacent to it, at one time became the starting point in the career of the most influential architect of the XXI century Zaha Hadid.
The story about this center, about the personality of one of the most outstanding sons of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev, after whom it is named, about its designer Zaha Hadid and about the sights surrounding it is the basis of the final part of the journey through Baku at night. After that, with a farewell auto-inspection through the streets of the city, the guests return home.
