The capital of the Republic of Azerbaijan is the city of Baku.
Baku is my native city. Baku is an old city Baku is the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan. It is the largest city on the Caspian Sea and of the Caucasus region. Baku is divided into eleven administrative districts (raions) and 48 townships. The city is the scientific, cultural and industrial center of Azerbaijan.
About City Baku is located 28 metres below sea level, which makes it the lowest lying national capital in the world. The seafront is one of the most beautiful places in Baku. The name Baku means “Wind-pounded city” from Persian names of the city Bad-Kube, in which bad means “Wind” and kube is the verb kubidan, “ to pound”. It has the city’s nickname as the “City of Winds”. Also a folk etymology explains the name as deriving from Baghkuy, meaning “God’s town”. The first written evidence for Baku dates to the 1-st century AD. The city became important after an earthquake destroyed Shamakhy in the 12-th century, when the ruling Shirvanshah, Akhsitan I, chose Baku as the new capital.
There are a lot of nice places and outstanding landmarks in Baku. Baku Boulevard is a pedestrian promenade that runs parallel to Baku's seafront.

If there’s one thing you should know about getting around my city, it’s that the main attractions of Baku are in walking distance of each other in the city’s center. Targovi is a pedestrian avenue where a cluster of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and shops can be found. Tip: Most street names and signs are in Azerbaijani, but don’t panic! The language employs the Latin alphabet and the words can be pronounced phonetically.
