  • We visited resort area which is really nice. One can spend all day there or stay overnight in several private rooms. There is a chicken playground, petite zoo, etc. Food is excellent. We liked mangal salad, Lula kabob, etc. Number one item is sheikh's pilaf ( takes over 2 hrs to be prepared)
  • The nearest forest to Baku.
  • Nice park looks like deep jungle
