Nothing especial at the square. Some fast food and usual stores! May be we should visit it in better weather condition!

Looked awesome & place was quite pleasant. The city street’s are full of artifacts and monuments, and it is said that there is no house in Baku who have at least a single art work in their house, in fact they have artistic soul and it was clearly visible, while roaming.

Can't miss this place while staying in Baku, because it's located in the middle of the city centre. Many fountains are out of order most of time but look great even without water.. 😊

Very nice square, lots of benches and places to sit. Trees in the centre. Shops all around. Lost my glasses in the morning and 1 hour later had a new set for $AS80

I couldn't understand what the beauty of this place. it is completely ordinary and too small fountain at a park. you could find it at your house's yard. doesn't worth to visit.

Very cosmopolitan area with pleasant parade with cobbled streets leading off it. Loads of good restaurants and bars. Family friendly as you will see by the local residents strolling until the late hours.

Lovely Place to eat or drink, right in the heart of Old Baku. So many nice bars and restaurants. It's a pretty square too, leafy and spacious and immaculately clean. Loads of locals mingle with the tourists creating a nice vibe The best place in Baku to relax and a good place to gravitate towards and use to orientate yourself

The Fountain Square is in the heart of Baku... Very lively place..well lit up, it looked like some celebration atmosphere. Our hotel was right around ,so we always passed the Fountain Square.There are many restaurants and souvineer shops around where you would get good, cheap and tasty eats as well as some souvineers to take back home Must-visit at night...
