The Heydar Aliyev Centre is one of the most architecturally distinctive buildings in Baku. Designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, the building is a lasting tribute to Heydar Aliyev, the former President who is credited with bringing Azerbaijan into modernity post-communism as well as starting the family dynasty that continues to rule the country today. Inside you can find an interesting museum devoted to his life.

This museum building complex is a must visit in Baku for its unique and remarkable architecture design! Recommended to visit both during the day and at night because the lighting design makes it a different experience.

This is one of the most unique and bizarre buildings I have seen in Baku. Often acknowledged as Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the center was built for the ex-president exhibiting various artworks. The building is quite impressive both inside and outside. There are oversized statues of colorful snails and rabbits in its park, making it a fabulous spot for a unique photo shoot.
