Just a Photo Stop

This monument is located with the old City of Baku. Can be easily missed if you are not observant enough. A cute monument for a quick photo stop

Quirky
Sep 2019
This quirky monument is yet another reason to smile and enjoy Baku. An aside, you will find cats everywhere in Baku and they all seem to be very well treated.

Cats are everywhere
Sep 2019
I like Baku citizens how they treat cats. There are little houses for them, You can meet cat everywhere, This monument is also very nice. Our 3 years old child felt in love in Baku cats.

Lovers? Stargazers? Spectators!
Sep 2018 • Solo
Walking along the streets of Icheri Shehir I happened to see the sculptures Lovers and Cats (they are separate in different storeys). Apart from the fact that quite a few legends exist about them, I did not find them extraordinary and wonder whether they have got anything to do with each other. “Stargazers“- might be a good title just as well. Let‘s simply call them „spectators“!

Its a very cute monument to the original Capet Master and his family. It is located opposite where he opened his factory in the Old City. If you didn't know it was there then there's a good chance you will walk straight past it.

Saw it, Didn't even know what it was.

This isn't really a big deal, it is in the Old City.
We walked through this old road and looked up and there this was.
A quick photo snap and move on.

You have to look up at the right place and the right moment. It is cute, but not special. Do not walk to brisk so you do not miss it!
