      by AxelS Online Now Apr 11, 2013 at 7:39 AM


      I'm Axel and I'm from Amsterdam. I'm so exited because this May I will visit Baku with my family. It was always a dream for us to visit your country and especially Baku, one of the most beautiful city's in the world. We had a few questions about our citytrip

      1. There are a few mosques in the Old City, is it possible to visit them? Do they have an entrance fee?

      2. Is it possible to visit the Heydar Aliyev Cultural center? Does it have an entrance fee?

      3. We have heard that there is a restaurant in the TV Tower of Baku. Is that true? Is it a nice/safe restaurant? Is it expensive? We love to see the view of Baku from the tower

      4. Is it possible to visit the Holy Myrrhbearers Cathedral, The Church of the Saviour, The Turkish Mosque and the Taza Pir Mosque? Do they have an entrance fee?

      5. What is the entrance fee of the Carpet Museum?

      6. Is it possible to visit the Mukhtarov Palace (Palace of Happiness)?

      7. Are there many tourists in Baku?

      We will visit Baku for 5 days. We are going to the fire temples and the National Park Gobustan. Do you guys have some more tips for us? We love to see al the beautiful architecture of Baku.
