  • Highland Park is the place where a beautiful view opens - and cities and seas. You can walk at a calm pace of 30 minutes on the steps or in a few minutes on the cable car. From the observation square, huge in size, there are picturesque views, which you want to capture and take away as a memory of Baku. A lot of air, sun and just an abundance of white color around gives some parade and solemnity of this square, but behind it stretches the park with alleys of memory of hundreds who died in military events of the recent past. One thing is horrifying - how many lives were cut short then! Walking through the Park, it is on the memorial part of it, evokes sad thoughts about life and death! Nevertheless, this place, of course, should be visited as one of the most important and important for the residents of Baku.

  • Great place with spectacular landscape of Baku marina. Nice park to have a walk and to admire Flame Towers. Funicular is best way to get there. Recommend especially for tourists.
  • My favorite place of Baku, where I could see the city from the above and the Flame Towers from a great angle! The funicular wasn’t working, but it’s only 15 minutes walking until the top. And it is really worth it! I went during sunset and I totally recommend it! It was just hard to find a restroom.
