Azerbaijan is a mysterious country for common people. The best way to have a good idea about history, people, traditions as well as modern day country is to visit this magnificent architectural monument and get a closer encounter of all aspect of life and culture of Azerbaijan. It's a journey throughout the ages from the bronze age and Islamic heritage all the way to being part of the soviet union till the independence and modern day republic and the problems it faces. Traditional costumes, music, arts, architecture and literature as well as the people of Azerbaijan are also present. And finally the 2 major aspects, the life of the modern nation founder, Heydar Aliyev, and the conflict with neighboring Armenia. It's a complete resume of modern wealthy country. It's worth mentioning this interesting architecture is the work of famous Iraqi female engineer, Zaha Hadid, a very interesting modern architect whose magnificent designs are trade marks in every corner of the world.

We live opposite a Zaha Hadid building (Oxford). Not many people can say that. But it's on rather a more humble scale than the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre.

Most people come here to pose in front of or inside the building which is understandable as it is truly remarkable. However, the contents are worth a look - the scale models of national buildings and the presents from undiscriminating world leaders was supplemented by a rather good display of luxury dresses from French designers when we were there.

The gift shops contain suitably quirky items and the cafe is good for cake. There are also some beautifully displayed local ethnographic objects with good descriptions in English.

The convention centre next door is also rather space age but designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au. The auditorium has a great ceiling and is sometimes pen for concerts.

The Heydar Aliyev cultral center is not just an architecture masterpiece but also offers a window into History of Azerbaijan.

The cultural center has a modern museum showing some of the articles in use by then president Heydar Aliyev.

The park surrounding the cultural center is also frequented by tourists for it's great photo op.

P.S. I LOVE BAKU sign board is placed on the garden.
