With a population of over 2 million, Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan. Situated near the Caspian Sea, it is an important location for the country's sea port. Recently renovated, the Fountains Square serves as one of the city's main attraction, consisting of various shops, restaurants and on occasion, public festivals. Cultural sights include the Maiden Tower - a design by Masud ibn Davud dating back to the 12th century. Baku also offers its visitors a chance to view the "Yanar Dag" (fire mountain) phenomenon - an ancient fire that continues to burn even today, due to the concentration of natural gas. Visitors may also go offshore from Baku, in Neft Daşları, to the Oil Rocks Drilling Platform built in 1947, which has also become a small and unusual city on the sea. So fly with Austrian Airlines to Baku for an exclusive experience.
