6 Travel Notes, Azerbaijan

Travel Notes, Azerbaijan

We are in Baku, the city of contrasts. The city today is a huge construction site where they build skyscrapers and  interchanges, as well as reconstruct old Soviet five-storeyed buildings. Baku has combined nice architecture and good food.

In some areas, Baku may resemble you Dubai, while it is mostly a typical Soviet-style city.

Some say they plan to demolish all old low-rise buildings located in downtown Baku to replace them with modern constructions.

Reconstructed Soviet residential houses look amazing!

They face them with stone, attach nice balconies and illumination.

The city has a heavy traffic so there are often traffic jams on the road, so they have installed information screens showing the road situatiion.

Some projects they are building in Baku are really impressing, like the 12,000 m2 Haydar Aliyev Cultural Centre which is planned to feature a concert hall and a library.

This is what the concert hall interior will be look like soon.

Construcion works are almost over.

It is a large construction site!

    Another “funda-mental” backwater where without scientific socialism the men are trapped in a reptilian mindset. Oil buys pretty buildings but doesn’t buy intelligence.

    What a friendly city, especially the faces of men are so “bright” and full of love to the humankind.

    What do you think ?? Would you live there ?? Would you visit them as a tourist ? Perhaps with your very cute young daughter… blond, blue eyes of course !

    All that money and none for the poor and disfranchised military veterans, a sham, really.
