  • An amazing cultural arts centre and museum with amazing exhibitions of art and history. Awesome architecture. One can spend the entire day here just wandering about inside from one exhibition to another. Has a very detailed section on the history of Azerbaijan and its founding father Hyder Aliyev.
  • Amazing architecture, one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen! Especially from the inside. Interesting exhibitions, it is clear that a lot of work/thought was put into everything. Highly recommended!!
