The name of the capital of Azerbaijan can be translated as “the city of winds”. This is a wonderful resort located on the border of Europe and Asia.
Primorsky Boulevard is known as the favorite place of rest among locals and tourists. It stretches just along the coastal line and is known as a perfect place for unhurried romantic walks. The boulevard is decorated with old chestnut trees, bright flowered beds, picturesque fountains and palms.
