Baku gets its unique look at night, the boulevard sparkling with lights and its reflection in the Caspian gives the city a completely new charm. Our tour helps you see this sparkle from a series of different angles. We briskly cross Fountain Square and pass the extravagant architecture of Nizami Street where out-door chandeliers light the crowds of locals on their nightly passeggiata. Then we stroll a section of the world’s longest urban promenade, learning about the time of its foundation over a century ago when Baku’s oil barons were building their elegant mansions along the Caspian shore. Far from dry history, these tales are mixed with fun facts and juicy insider tips about Baku’s eclectic nightlife. Passing Baku’s Little Venice, complete with gondolas, we use the Funicular to zip up to Highland Park for breath-taking views across Baku Bay encompassing National Flag Square and Crystal Hall far below while getting an unusual series of close-up views of the legendary Flame towers – a trio of skyscrapers that really do appear to burn thanks to an extraordinary light show.
Finish your walk at the funky, modernist microbrewery Beerbaşa enjoying a glass of one of their excellent craft beers, brewed on-site (non-alcoholic alternatives available).
