A month of touring the city and getting to the essence of the Caspian capital

In a city like Baku, exploring is everything. Setting out on foot into the streets and letting the Azerbaijani capital slowly reveal its unique personality and myriad hidden gems is one of its greatest pleasures. 

Along the way, Big in Baku has been seduced by the blend of ancient and ultra-modern, the many parks and boulevards and the style with which Bakuvians live their lives within it all. 

Its gastronomic revolution has placed Baku on the map as a foodie's destination of choice and its malls buzz with the cutting edge of international fashion. Whether it is Tiffany's or Topshop, Fendi or Ferrari, as a shopping destination, Baku now rivals any metropolis in the world. 

Traveller's bible the Lonely Planet had already put Baku in its top 10 party destinations and in June named it one of the 10 best places in Europe to visit in 2015. The Azerbaijani capital has long been famous for its hospitality, and as the number of luxury hotels continues to rise and the European Games has helped Baku let the world know exactly what makes it tick, it is now time to follow in the footsteps of the continent's athletes and bask in the post-Games glow.

With that spirit of adventure, the Big in Baku team went in search of the essence of the host city of the inaugural European Games, taking snapshots, filming its sights and getting closer to the people that call this magical city home. Watch the best of our Tales From Baku...
