I didn't like the fact that some of the heritage sites were reconstructed more beautifully than perhaps they were in all their glory centuries ago. It was an interesting city, but it felt fake as a result of all the reconstruction. Very touristy area and yet, Azerbaijan isn't an extremely touristy place. It's great for those in the oil industry, but it's not very tourist friendly.
