Fountain Square Baku is the center of the fountain cluster and the most popular place in Baku. There are indeed many fountains here, both classical and avant-garde, i.e., shaped as six steel balls on a wide pedestal. Or a flowing oval fountain that splashes water into the open mouths of miniature hippos. Water cascades also descend from the bowl of the largest fountain in the square – snap great pictures that exemplify the modern image of Baku as you relax in unique chair sculptures.
Flame Towers. Baku's most recognizable architectural landmark today is the three huge skyscrapers shaped as tongues of flame, located high on a hill that towers over the city. In the evenings, you can watch the stunning animated illumination on the buildings. It's best visible from the promenade on the embankment – really amazing, just don't take your eyes off it!
