The building looks extraordinary and worth to look at least from outside. I guess, it will be interesting to young contemporary architects. I have not been inside but heard from friends that the exhibitions are nice, especially the miniaturized Azerbaijani famous buildings.

One of the most charming places to see in Baku. Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre, a mixed-use venue featuring a conference hall, library, and museum, is scheduled to open in September 2011 in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan.

This building looks new and modern style. You'll get mostly landmark in Baku in scale or I can say you can see the miniature of Baku. If you visit Baku for the first time and have no clues about Baku, to visit Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center maybe is the best option for you to see how's Baku generally then you... More

Amazing building and architecture. The entrance fees were very cheap. This place is symbol of Baku and the architect is Zaha Hadid. In addition, this place hosts different types of exhibitions. I really loved this place; it's a must see in Baku. The only thing that I didn't like is that there is no signs where to go in the... More
