The “old city”, as they call it, is unique and worth visiting. Try finding your way out of there! And some of the architecture is interesting. I would go back if only for the memories, but to an average tourist, the sites would be far and few in between. Yet it’s an interesting place and from what I remember the people are warm. And the food is good!over 5 years ago

Baku is not the most architectually fascinating place, but it is definately an interesting place to visit.
There is a strange contrast of Middle-Eastern, Russian & Texas cultures. Texas you ask? Yes, there are lots of Americans there working on oil projects. There were cowboys with pickup trucks (even saw one with a gun rack) all over the city.
The ‘old city’ is very attractive- full of expensive houses built during the oil boom in the early 1900’s. There is a large pedestrian mall in the centre of the city, where you can observe families relaxing during the cooler hours.
