Day 1
Immediately upon arrival, you will be accommodated in a hotel, and depending on the time of arrival, a walk through daytime or evening-night Baku. We will visit the most popular, image places of the capital - you saw them on gift cards and brochures:
BakuWhiteCity, New Baku Boulevard, Flame Towers
The capital is blooming and prettier. It has turned into a metropolis in which the old and the new coexist beautifully. Baku is changing its style - you will see that several grandiose buildings with futuristic architecture were built in the city, but it also doesn’t refuse the good old “classics”. For example, the Government House is a free improvisation on the Shirvanshahs Palace, and the new streets of BakuWhiteCity are very reminiscent of the French quarters. At the end of the program, you will find a welcome dinner in the restaurant-museum Shirvanshah.
Day 2
22 hectares of color in the Old Town
After breakfast, we will dive into the history and atmosphere of the Old Town. The Old City is 22 hectares of color, where we will see the Shirvanshahs Palace, visit the museum of a miniature book, and do not forget about the legendary streets of the films “Diamond Hand” and “Amphibian Man”.
We will have lunch in a traditional restaurant, tasting the wines of the country, where the sun is harvested in grapes.
Well-fed and satisfied, we will go on an excursion to the Heydar Aliyev Center - a symbol of “white” Baku, a cultural center. In 2014, he was shortlisted by the London Design Museum as a nominee for the Designs of the Year Award in the Architecture category. And in April of the same year, the project of architect Zaha Hadid was recognized as the best.
The huge complex became the decoration and pride of the city. In addition to the unusual design, its scale is striking. It housed a conference hall, museum, library, concert hall. Have you ever tried Azerbaijani brandy? And what does Azerbaijani wine taste like?
New flavors await you at a tasting in the wine gallery of one of the oldest productions.
Then we look into the colorful shops of the Old City, go up to the Maiden Tower, where an amazing panorama of the Baku bay awaits us.

Do you know how to serve dinner in Azerbaijani, who occupies an honorable place at the head of the table and why are Baku people so hospitable? It takes years to understand all the secrets of Azerbaijani culture. But at this master class you will learn the most important and come closer to understanding national customs through acquaintance with culinary traditions. It's time to try your hand at mastering the local cuisine!
