Enter the wonderful world of Crimean chocolatier Nikolay Popov

Fans of chocolate – and let’s face it, that covers virtually everybody – should get themselves along to Baku’s Museum Center, and sharpish. Because up until 28 June, the venue is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the glorious brown stuff, featuring some marvellous wonders that would not be out of place in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

They are the work of Crimean chocolatier Nikolay Popov and pride of place goes to a 3x2m, 215kg depiction of the Baku 2015 logo, made of chocolate and marzipan. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is believed to be the largest chocolate picture in the world.

The ‘chocolate miracles’ on show include depictions of Baku landmarks such as the UNESCO-listed Maiden Tower, the uber-modernist Flame Towers and the classical Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater.

You don't need a golden ticket, so hurry along but remember, you must not eat any of it.
