    Funicular operating hours
    There were conflicting infos about operating hours. So, here is the most recent schedule as displayed on Funicular doors: operating hours are from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM six days a week with a one-hour daily lunch break from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Funicular is closed on Mondays. It runs up from across the street from Bulevard near Deniz mall close to a spot in Dagustu park (also referred to as Upland or Highland park in some reviews) with a great panoramic view of the city.

    Must visit in BAKU
    It was a fantastic experience. The one side trip is costing only 1 Manat. The panoramic city and sea view from highland park is beautiful and flame building looks fantabulous from nearby. Also turkish matyrs mosque and graveyard to be visited.

    Saves walking
    After visiting Martyr's Lane and enjoying the panoramic views of Baku, it is convenient to hop on the funicular, which takes you all the way down to the waterfront. You exit close to the Carpet Museum. It's fun, saves time and is not expensive.

This is my third time here. I love the experience and the view. It’s only one manat per ride. Don’t take tours. It’s too expensive. Their is a very good restaurant at the top with good food and beautiful atmosphere. It’s called Manzara restaurant.

The funicular is well signed and is located inside an impressive and modern building. The journey to Upland Park only takes a few minutes and costs 1 Manat each way. The views from both inside the funicular and once you reach Upland Park are fabulous. It’s a great way of getting to the park and close to Flame Towers, particularly if walking uphill is a challenge.
As with all transport in Baku, the funicular and its building are kept immaculately clean. When I was there the funicular was running every 15 minutes. It’s definitely worth seeking out and riding on. There are stairs that run parallel to the funicular track and this presents a nice opportunity to travel up on the funicular and then return by walking down the stairs.

We were slightly disappointed when the funicular station at Bahram Gur was closed for lunch but we went back a few hours later and the service was running again. There was a lot of waiting around at the station before the Funicular was ready for passengers to board. It was worth the wait because the journey to Martyrs’ Lane was very scenic with incredible views of central Baku and the Caspian Sea. The Funicular was completed in 1960 and has been completely modernised since then. The Baku Funicular is worth visiting whilst in the city as the views are amazing.

It’s a nice way to travel up hill but not a great distance and can be easily climbed using the steps along side. We took a lone route shown by google along side the vehicular road and half way decided to climb the steps to the terrace gardens near the top funicular station which has spectacular panoramic views of the sea, the city and the flame towers. The funicular carriage is a modern and efficient design and is a good way to go up for the aged and the physically disabled. The funicular travel does not offer much views as partly it goes through a tunnel and the rest is through vegetation. The ticket is just 1 manat. Recommended for one way travel preferably going up as one wouldn’t want to miss the huge and very beautiful stairway at least while descending.
