The capital of Azerbaijan and the Caucasus' largest city, Baku brings the old and the new, the East and the West colliding together in a particularly diverse and changing city.
Appreciate the collections at Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center and Miniature Books. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Baku Old City and Maiden Tower. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape, examine the collection at Azerbaijan Carpet Museum, delve into the distant past at Ateshgah - Fire Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Palace of the Shirvanshahs.

San Francisco, USA to Baku is an approximately 22-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 12 hours traveling from San Francisco to Baku due to the time zone difference. Traveling from San Francisco in September, plan for a bit warmer nights in Baku, with lows around 67°F.
