Known as the world’s oldest oil-producing region, Baku experienced a major boom at the beginning of the 1900s. Since 1991, the Azeris have been tapping this key commodity again to build on that history and create a bold new future.
As Baku becomes a pivotal centre for the international oil industry, the government is spending billions on futuristic real estate developments and cultural attractions. Today, this cosmopolitan city of two million feels dynamic and youthful. In the 12th-century Old City – a UNESCO World Heritage site – shops and restaurants are thriving.
Steps from the Old City, Four Seasons Hotel Baku boasts the capital’s most high-profile location: directly facing the Caspian Sea waterfront promenade on Neftchilar Avenue, Baku’s most prestigious boulevard, at the corner of Azneft Square, the most prominent intersection. European designer shopping lines the promenade to the north, and to the west, a public park leads to the Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Hall.
With the State Oil Company (SOCAR) immediately to the south and key corporate addresses for the oil and banking industries nearby, Four Seasons Hotel Baku provides Azerbaijan’s most strategic accommodations for international business.
