We spent an hour there with a guide speaking our own language!, Farsi, and it made our visit even more pleasant. A must go place if you want to get to know the culture.

Beautiful building. Sadly the charge of Manat 10 (USD 8) makes it a little expensive to see the building alone. Need an interest in Azeri literature to enjoy it.

Nizami museum is obviously one of the most important museums in Azerbaijani. Every literature admirer must visit this museum to meet Nizami Ganjavi's books and most important of all his Khamsa. Nizami Ganjavi is one of the most important and famous poets of Azerbaijan Republic.
