    Academy of Sciences

    academy of sciences

    Originally built by local millionaire Nagiev as a tribute to his dead son and to house the Ismailia Moslem charitable society it later was later ceded to the Academy of Sciences to house its Presidium. The architecture is mock italian Gothic by Polish architect Joseph Ploshko, imitating the Contarini palace in Venice. Behind it you can find the city wall and the Djebakhana tower. (The main building of the Academy is located near Baku State University)

    Academy of Sciences is located in a Gothic building looking like a typical Cambridge college. Look at the roof ornaments though, whose Islamic look contrasts with the rest of the building.
