Baku is one of the fastest evolving cities in the world today. The Caspian Sea reflects off the glass and chrome facades that are rapidly emerging from a lingering Soviet cocoon. But at its core, the Old Town stands as a proud testament to its ancient heritage. The fortress wall and UNESCO protect the Old Town from being overrun by a contemporary takeover. Exquisite museums, ancient palaces, aristocratic homes and an active arts scene make this a little-known haven for the culture curious traveler.
Situated on a bounty of oil and natural gas, Baku’s Flame Towers give the city an air of mysticism, heightened by its ancient Zoroastrian roots. Our Exeter International Extraordinary Experience takes you into the private home of the Nobel family. Visit one of the finest carpet collections in the world. Beautiful open spaces such as Fountain Square, the Bulvar promenade along the Caspian Sea, and the winding by-lanes of the Old Town make Baku a delight to explore. Discover the treasures of this exquisite destination with Exeter International.
