Modern architecture of Baku

Modern architecture of Baku

For several years Baku has been experiencing an incredible building boom. They build new hotels, office buildings, skyscrapers, modern art museums. The parks are clean and they look just perfect! Fountains, neat lawns, benches, illumination... It's very pleasant to be there! 

The building boom began after the country had won in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Driving around Baku, you see building cranes and building lumber all the time. They have three areas to work on. First of all, they reconstruct old Soviet buildings. Secondly, they preserve the ancient part of city by building new buildings in the same architectual style and limiting the entry. And finally, they build multiple modern buildings of unbelievable beauty.
