You can feel the heat

Like a natural gas stove, there's really nothing much here except the flames and heat. You're in the middle of oil drilling country. It's ugly. But if you want to make a tourist... read more

Like a natural gas stove, there's really nothing much here except the flames and heat. You're in the middle of oil drilling country. It's ugly. But if you want to make a tourist attraction of a natural event, this is what you get, Soviet style. No souvenir shop. Tour guides try to make it interesting by showing you other things... More

Definitely something to see. You will be happy that you took the short trek out of Baku to see this as you most likely won't see it anywhere else in the world. Not worth a long stay, but worth the stop!

I really enjoyed it. It is beautiful and something of a natural wonder. If you can go during twilight or early evening or maybe even see sunrise in order to enjoy the light (during daytime some of the gas flames may be hard to see…. And don’t try to feel :- ). It is a bit tricky to get there... More

I loved it. Nobody there except me. It is impressive and a really hot fire. No museum, no information provided, just the fire there to amaze you. Accept 2 Manat entry fee. The fence ends 200 meters from the gate, in case you arrive off the opening hours. From Metro Koroglu take bus 217 until final stop, for 30 qepik.... More

This attraction is 45 minutes outside Baku but is worth a visit if you have done the other major attractions in Baku. We went in the afternoon but I guess it is better at night. Get a taxi or driver as it is difficult to find.

It's just few flames. It's not even a meter high. Don't bother to go if you re even passing by. Surrounding is trash. And road is not really good considering the place is far away from baki.

It takes about an hour to get here and all you see is a couple of metres of flame at the bottom of a hill. There are better ways to spend your time.
