Heydar Aliyev Park
Covering a whopping 450 hectares, Heydar Aliyev Park has the title of Azerbaijan’s and the Caucasus’s largest park. A total of nine gates lead inside. The lavish Arch of Triumph marks the main entrance. Inside, manicured lawns and neat flower arrangements welcome visitors as they stroll through the complex. An amusement park, large pond and bicycle rentals provide entertainment while vendors sell popcorn, light snacks and refreshments. Despite the location on the city’s outskirts, the park ranks as a favourite attraction in Ganja.
