This park is named after a soviet super spy Richard Zorge which was one of the greatest officers of all times and alerted the Soviet high command about imminent Operation Barbarossa. Unfortunately today park is not under the good conditions as well with a monument of Richard Zorge, but if you are a fan of second world war history then it is a must place for you

I visited this sculpture some time ago. It is very atmospheric and the story 'behind the eyes' is fascinating. It is a must see when you are in Baku.

Other very interesting locations are:
The Maiden's Tower
The Fire Mountains and Fire Temple
The Caravanesri restaurant
The Mud Volcanoes, these are out of town but fascinating. British Ex Pats call them 'Clanger Land'
Outside the national sports stadium there is an iconic statue of the football linesman, (assistant referee) who confirmed the controversial goal for England against Germany in the 1966 World Cup Final. He is generally thought of as Russian, but he was an Azerbaijani.

Passing by of memorial to this, I am always struck those eyes.

Such energetic and penetrating eye for the monument I have never seen.

I asked several times what the monument at walking people there, but they did not know.

Finally, I decided to find out himself.

This is a monument to the German anti-nazy spy who worked for Moscow in 30-40 years of the 20th century.

He was born in 1895 in Baku, then, together with his family moved to Germany, he fought on her side in the 1st World War and became disillusioned with the war. Then he joined the Communist Party Germany and spied for the Soviet Union.

Hi first said to Moscow about the attack of Germany and that Japan would not attack the Soviet Union, so that Stalin broke fresh 26 well-trained divisions from east to west, and won the Battle of Moscow in 1941.

Behind the monument there is a large park with trees, there is always walking, local moms with kids.

Nearby there are cafes where you can drink coffee or tea or water.

Further away from the monument is the famous KOALA park with attractions for children.

Mornings and evenings here run sports fans.

Interesting meander if you are in Baku for a long while. Situated in a nice park. Would be better in the summer.

Visit with a guide book or a guide and learn the story of the very compelling sculpture. Beautiful and sad.
