Baku Boulevard is a beautiful several km promenade and ideal for long walks both by day and by night. It has undergone an amazing transformation and turned into a promenade many European cities can only dream of. It is very clean, green and well groomed area. The boulevard has a European look that makes it a great choice for a stroll both in daytime and with evening illumination. In some places you can walk right next to the Caspian Sea and enjoy a beautiful view over the Baku bay.
This place is very popular among locals who loves to be there with their families at the weekends and expats who jogs there. In the evenings and on weekends literally the half of Baku population is out walking, strolling, cycling, drinking tea, sipping beer, eating, fishing… It is definitely a hub of activity and offers plenty of chances for people watching. There are plenty of cafes where you can enjoy a cup of local tea or relax with a beer.
There are a couple of big modern malls along the boulevard as well as a beautifully maintained park that is complete with brass person themed statues.
Walk the Boulevard from either end and then walk back through the parks. You can start by crossing over to the Boulevard at the Marriott pedestrian tunnel and making your way at a gentle pace to the Flag square at the far end.
