What can you see in Azerbaijan?
In any topical guidebook you can easily find a list of most popular, interesting places in Azerbaijan. This list will definitely include such monuments of architecture as:
The Maiden Tower of Qiz Qalasi which became a museum in 1964, and in 2000 this sight was included into the list of UNESCO monuments;
The Azadlig Square, the main square of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, where almost all the mass events in the city are held. Here large-scale conserts are organized. From the square there opens up a beautiful scene of the sea and the quay;
The Palace of the Shirvan Shahs. The largest monument of Azerbaijanian sculpture which was also included into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000. Today that is a museum-reserve. The palace ensemble includes the main buildings, the remnants of the Keygubada mosque, a mosque with a minaret, a mausoleum, a family vault, etc. That is the most frequently attended sight of Baku.
The palace of the Shaki khans is one of the most beautiful Azerbaijan monuments: the palace includes only six rooms, but each of them is done in its own style, being decorated by magnificent ornaments. The palace is sometimes compared to the best palaces of the world preserved up till this day.
The state philharmonic hall built in 1911-1912, not functioning since early 90ies, but updated in 2004: today residents and guests of the city can enjoy the play of the leading world and Azerbaijan musicians in the reconstructed building.
But even the most complete guidebook cannot include the list of absolutely all the monuments, sights which Azerbaijan can boast of: in the country’s territory there are some thousands of monuments, temples, mosques. But is it not a good reason to come here once again?
