Travel Tips for Baku

Try the Sturgeon

by traveloturc

In Azerbaijan besides some of the best caviar in the world, you will be able to taste the sturgeon itself (osetr). In fact Many second courses are prepared of fish. Sturgeon shashlik, kutum a la Azerbaijan, kuku of kutum, balyg chygyrtma( Balik Cigirtma), stuffed fish, boiled, fried and stew fish, fish-pilaff, starred sturgeon pilaff, balyg mutyanjan and sturgeon fillet with pomegranate sauce (Narsharab) are the most popular fish dishes. But not all fish is sturgeon, and the Caspian sea also provides herring, salmon and the more rare pike perch.

Polite conversation

by dflewellen

An interesting point of social behavior here is that one never starts or ends a conversation with a specific topic of business or practical information. Every conversation starts and ends with casual inquiries as to your health, your family, how your day went, how nice the weather is, or some other non-significant discussion. To do otherwise is rude and brisque. Being in a hurry is not part of polite society here. All is done at a casual, relaxed pace.

Taza Bazari

by maykal

Opposite the circus is Baku's main market, the fascinating Taza Bazari. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't be put off...dig deep and you'll come across stalls piled high with spices and nuts, stallholders modelling the latest in Azeri headgear, and calls from the shadows to taste illicit caviar fresh from the Caspian. It is quite a walk from the old town, but worth the detour.

Maiden s Tower (Girls Tower)

by traveloturc

Located in the walled town (Icheri-Shekher) the Maiden's Tower (Gyz Galassy) is Azerbaijan's best known landmark and the de facto symbol of Baku. You can climb its eight floors and enjoy a magnificent view of the old town and Baku bay. The cylinder shaped tower is about 30 metres tall with a diameter of 16.5 metres and walls 5 metres thick. Archaeologists estimate that the tower was started in the 7th or 8th century and enlarged in the 11th or 12th century by a Massud ibn Daud, as a kufic inscription reveals. Built on a coastal rock, that made tunnelling under it impossible, the tower as a bizarre projection at the base which gives it the appearance of a retort (closed on Sunday).Most of the walls and towers, strengthened after the Russian conquest in 1806, survived.

Government House

by traveloturc

Built on what was till the late 19th century a moor, used for hunting, today's government palace is nothing but the former "house of the Soviets". The magnificent outside architecture is the result of a competition won in 1934 by muscovite architects L.Rudnev and V.Munts. The works started soon after the competition but the war and further delays only allowed for the building to be completed only 20 years after. German prisoners of war or widely used in its construction. Its 12 floors are more appealing outside than inside. A 12 metre tall statue of Lenin by D.Kariagdy is gone long ago.
