The 16 km of promenade paths along the Caspian Sea in Baku are the highlight of running in Baku. The paths are very wide and open, passing through numerous parks, with great water views the whole way. Bonus: lit at night! We’ve divided the promenade into two routes, starting at Azneft Square. This route is nearly 7 km south/west route to Crystal Hall/Azərbaycan Dənizçilərinin Xatirəsinə (Memorial Park). See also our 9 km north/east route to the Marriott.
Starting from Azneft Square, head south, passing the Mini-Venice attraction and the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum. Continue on the wide path through the waterfront park, with views to the Baku Eye and Bayıl Castle, and around the port/marina area surrounding the Baku Crystal Hall, a modern glass arena. Continue around the point, passing the Elektra Events Hall and the waterfront path to Azərbaycan Dənizçilərinin Xatirəsinə (Memorial Park).
Add-Ons: Can also combine with waterfront path north/east to New City Park & the Marriott.
- Up to 9.2 km (5.7 miles) one-way
- Flat (actually below sea level!)
- Azneft Square or any point along the way
