Nizami Street Area Shopping (Self Guided), Baku

Whatever your shopping heart desires, you are bound to find it on Nizami Street. This is one of the most famous shopping streets in Baku, a hip and bustling pedestrianized avenue with a rich variety of shops, including small outlets, souvenir stores and supermarkets. The main shopping area begins at Fountain Square, and it is a hotspot for clothes, especially in the high-end shops. This part of the city is also notable for its expensive and stylish restaurants and hotels.

One of the most popular shopping destinations is the TsUM Shopping Store (MUM), the largest departmental store in Baku. There are several floors filled with stalls that sell just about everything you can imagine, and probably some things that you can't. The variety and range of goods are outstanding.

While shopping is undoubtedly the principle activity on Nizami Street, the architecture is also a huge draw. Many European embassies have taken up residence here, and the buildings feature a number of different architectural styles, including Baroque, Renaissance and Neo-Gothic. Nizami Street fascinates and excites by day, but do make a point of coming back to the area for a nighttime stroll. The area is brilliantly illuminated by lights and decorations.
