Baku, Capital and Commercial hub of Azerbaijan is low-lying city with coastline along the Caspian
Sea. On the fault line between East and West, Baku is unlike anywhere else on earth. Baku offers a
fascinating Soviet legacy, soaring towers that could have been transplanted from Shanghai, along
with a beautiful ancient center. Contradictory it may be, but Baku is always a delight.
High summer can be a little intense for some, so visit between April and June or September to
October for the best weather. Winters tend to be chilly, and many attractions close for the season.
