Seaside Park (Baku Boulevard)

Thanks to its unique illumination, it constantly attracts glances and fascinates. We are talking about a wonderful beauty and grandeur of the building “Government House”, which fits perfectly into the overall architecture of the city.
The first oil well
It is believed that the first oil well was drilled by an American, Edwin Dreieck, in 1859. But very few people know that the well in Baku was drilled 13 years earlier, namely in 1846. It was this well that gave an impetus to the commercial production of oil and natural gas around the world. Do not forget to bring your camera and add a unique photo to your “piggy bank”.
We pass by the Baku Aquatic Palace, a huge sport facility built by the order of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev for the first European Games in Baku.
