Baku is the capital and economic center of Azerbaijan, located on the coast of the Caspian Sea, 28 metres below sea level, which makes it the lowest lying national capital in the world and also the largest city in the world located below sea level.
Baku lies on the southern shore of the Absheron Peninsula, alongside the Bay of Baku. The fortress wall surrounds the Old City, where the former royal residence of the Palace of the Shirvanshahs and the famous Maiden Tower are located.
The Walled City of Baku with the Shirvanshah’s Palace and Maiden Tower are classified a UNESCO’s World Heritage since 2000. Examples of modern architecture in Baku are the Heydar Aliyev Center, designed by the famous architect Zaha Hadid, and the Flame Towers, three skyscrapers.
