This is where the locals congregate, take their children, visit bars and restaurants. After a busy day exploring Old Town and the waterfront, make sure you join them to get a feel for vibrant Baku.

My son and I enjoyed spending time in Fountain Square. Not so far from the Old City, it's a part of the city that is buzzing with people socialising and eating at the many restaurants lined around the square. I'd recommend the visiting the square late afternoon / early evening.

Fountain Square is the contact point between Old Baku and Nizami street, very interesting place to visit in Baku specially for walking next to the Nature.

This is a square with a nice fountain and surrounded by wide paved street, restaurants etc.

Plenty of seating and a nice place to take some pictures and also relax with a coffee.

It seems to be quite central to a lot of the lively bars and restaurant areas of Baku, so probably need to be ticked off and photographed.

This is the place to meet the locals. It is such a lively place mainly on weekend when dozens of thousands are strolling around and in the nearby pedestrian street. The locals are nice, polite, hospitable and easy going. The fountains are nice as well but for me the human side was more impressive,

The name fountains square derives from the presence of dozens of fountains throughout the square first constructed during Soviet rule of Azerbaijan.Situated in Downtown Baku with Nazimi street within the vicinity and hence one of the plushest localities of Baku.
