It can be a daunting task to find the best venues in Baku that could be stress-free and convenient for spending the best time with a beloved partner. However, it’s not impossible and there are several places that are the most interesting places for dating in Baku to enjoy love in the air. Here are the top 10.
Considering the fact that Baku is located on the shore of the Caspian Sea, it would be unfair not to mention the seaside. Evening walk under the dim lights, fresh air and warm wind of Baku – all of these will create the atmosphere of love, happiness and romance. You can even leave the boundaries of Baku, and visit such places as Bilgah and Zagulba, which are popular beach resorts in summer season. However, during cold seasons couples can spend their time at Baku Boulevard, which is located in the heart of the city. Continuing the romantic walk, you can take a ride on one of the gondolas of “Venice of Baku”.
