go for a stroll onthe Baku Boulevard
For well over a century, the Baku Boulevard has been a beloved recreation area for Baku residents. Over the years it’s gradually been extended and beautified and nowadays, in addition to ever-changing views of the city and Baku Bay, it boasts an abundance of trees and green spaces, making it an ideal escape from the urban hustle and bustle.
What’s more, it’s home to a wealth of attractions: Don’t miss browsing the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum, housed in an eye-catching carpet-shaped building and taking you on a memorable journey through Azerbaijan’s UNESCO-listed carpet art. A stone’s throw away is the spectacular Deniz Mall, packed with shops selling the best brands, plus cafes and restaurants galore and three different kids’ entertainment centres. The Bayil end of the Boulevard, beyond Flag Square, hosts the Surakhani Ship Museum – the world’s first oil tanker museum, as well as the Yarat Contemporary Art Centre and the Museum of Azerbaijani Painting of the XX-XXI Centuries.
And that’s not all! You can also: take a ride on the Baku Eye, float along the canals of Little Venice, or take a short romantic cruise across the Baku Bay. There are contemporary restaurants and traditional tea houses to relax and refuel in, and you can also explore the Boulevard by bike or electric scooter, both of which are available for rent.
