“pleasant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

The photo featured by this review panel is of the Philharmonia and not the Fountain square. Fountain Sauare has been totally renovated since I first visited Baku, is much more open and lacks the fountains that was ince there. Some shopping there, a couple of restaurants and a MacDonalds whic is very busy. A few seats to sit on and watch the local populace walk by but nothing really special.

“Peaceful, and a great spot to see people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Among its quite pretty modern fountains, many people cross this pedestrian square, and some sit, play music, etc. It forms a natural junction between the Old City and the older parts of the new.

“like so many other modern plazas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Hampered by police when there last weekend during small demonstrations, I tried to find something unique about the square. It is pretty. Leafy. Shaded in parts. Usual Baku fountains... but in my view, lacked heart.
