How to Spend 1 Day in Baku

How to Spend 1 Day in Baku

With just one day in the Azerbaijani capital, you can explore its architectural gems, Soviet legacy, seaside promenade, and the Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here’s how to get the most out of 24 hours in Baku.

Morning: City Highlights

If you’re a first-time visitor to Baku, get oriented this morning with a sightseeing tour through the city streets. Learn about Baku’s history, from the fifth century to the Soviet era and independence, as you visit sites such as the Maiden Tower, Palace of the Shirvanshahs, Flame Towers, Fountains Square, and the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum. Take a stroll on the breezy Baku Seaside Boulevard and ride on the Baku Funicular to snap photos of the city from a panoramic viewpoint. 

Afternoon: Hammam or Outdoor Adventure

This afternoon, experience the bathhouse, or hammam, long an important institution in Azerbaijani culture. Cycle between hot and cold in the sauna and plunge pools before enjoying a traditional treatment, such as a salt scrub or body massage. If you’d prefer something more active, spend the afternoon exploring Gobustan National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—and the active mud volcanoes that line the Azerbaijani coast nearby.

Night: A Taste of Azerbaijan

Polish off your day in Baku with a gastronomy-themed walking tour through the picturesque Old City. Learn about the country’s culinary heritage while sampling traditional dishes, such as dolmas, kebabs, minced mutton with herbs, and a typical local rice dish. For a more intimate experience, spend your evening in the home of an Azerbaijani family, chatting about local life and dining on a meal home cooked by the family matriarch. If you still have energy to burn, head out on the town for an evening pub crawl to some of the city’s nightlife hot spots.
