“beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Its a lovely place to see, relax and take tonnes of photos. But as a foreigner you will stand out, whether you are black white pink green or orange and people will stare, sometimes point and laugh at you. But the scenery is amazing. Lots of nice shops and places to eat are within the area. In fact there is a McDonalds, which is a landmark for most "meet me at" in Fountain Square. At Christmas time, the area is adorned with beautiful lights and christmas trees well decorated, very picturesque.

“A Fountain Square that stands out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

With so many squares with fountains in so many towns around the world, the name "Fountain Square" doesn´t seem very attractive, until you stroll this square and find its unique flavour.
Baku has itself a lot of pretty fountains, like the Governor´s park, the Phillarmonia park, the White Fountain, but the difference with Fountain Square is the quantity and diversity of the fountains, the pedestrian walks and the sculptures around the fountains.
Take a walk late in the afternoon, when the temperature cools down.

“Great spot for people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The area is looking lovely with all the park area open and the fountains on.
Wandering around on a summer evening is very enjoyable, with the carousels, cafes and bars open it is very pleasant.

“relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Wandering in the centre of the city of Baku is very enjoyable! People are friendly and even the salespeople at the market are modest and not pushy. I had the pleasant experience that an Azeri youngster returned my iPod when I left that at a restaurant. Very honest people, indeed!
The historical monuments are quite well preserved. Of course a must when in Baku.
