Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan and its largest city, as well as an ancient city and a rich cultural centre. It is a meeting point between Europe and Asia, Western and Eastern culture, tradition and modernity.

The country has long enjoyed the glory of a modern Muslim community where a library, theatre and opera has been opened for the first time.

Contemporary Baku is a city with developed infrastructure and a large industrial centre increasingly becoming a symbol of daring and modern Eastern architecture.
