Overview

Baku Boulevard (Dənizkənarı Milli Park, National Park) is a promenade that runs parallel to Baku’s seafront. It is the oldest park and a valuable monument of garden-park art in Azerbaijan.

The park was awarded medals and diplomas of various degrees and won previous republican and All-Union competitions. The park conflates architectural elements of the East and the West.

Baku Boulevard is the largest boulevard in the Soviet Union in terms of distance. Modern Azerbaijan necessitated increasing the length of the boulevard. The length of Baku Boulevard will reach 14-15 kilometers after the construction of coastal strips in the flag square.

The territory of the Seaside National Park is being expanded to the State Flag Square. In the extended area along the coast, landscaping works, concrete slabs, fastening, and cleaning works are underway.

In the Eurovision Song Contest, Employees of the Seaside Boulevard Office and facilities attend English language training to serve foreign guests. A large monitor on the boulevard put out information on the culture and history of Azerbaijan.

State Flag Square

State Flag Center is a memorial park in the Bayil area of Baku. It is a beautiful architectural monument spread across 60 hectares. The text of the anthem, the coat of arms, and a map are the state symbols of Azerbaijan that it depicts. This is the highest and largest flag in the world, with a height of 162 meters. 

The Clock Tower

The Clock Tower served as a Parachute Tower in the 1930s. It was restored to give it a modern look during reconstruction work in the Seaside National Park.

Other Places

The yacht club is a spectacular building with its originality. The international Mugam Center and the Baku Business center add to the beauty of the park. The long-renovated town of Venice stands out for its aesthetics.

Flora

Around 100 species of evergreen plants, ornamental shrubs, and rare trees were brought from across the globe and planted in the park. Argentina, Australia, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, The Netherlands, and Turkey are some countries.  These imported trees included chantorria, Canary palm, magnolia, baobab, and European olive.

More than 8 species of roses and 100 cacti (6 species) from Mexico were imported to the park.

History

Its history is 100 years old when Baku oil barons built their mansions alongside the Caspian shore, and the seafront was built up artificially.

Baku City Duma decided to build the seaside boulevard in 1909. Famous engineer Mammad Hasan Hajinski, Kurevich, and architect Adolf Eichler contributed to its implementation and development after qualifying a competition. 

A green belt between the seashore and the newly built Alexander Street (Neftchilar Avenue) was planned as per the proposal. Initial two years, fertile soil was transported here from abroad, and various rare plant species were brought from Azerbaijan and Europe. 

Boulevard developed into a beautiful green and recreation area during the Soviet era. The state carried out reconstruction work on the seaside boulevard in the 1970s due to the expansion of landscaping in Baku.

Some valuable plant species were destroyed due to rising Caspian levels and impact. Non-recreational facilities were built here.

In 1998, given all these development, national leader Heydar Aliyev decreed to give the Seaside Boulevard the status of a National Park as a national treasure.

The president established the Seaside Boulevard Office under the Cabinet of Ministers in 2008.  It followed a lot of restoration, preservation, protection, and reconstruction, keeping in view Baku's modern architectural requirements.

During reconstruction and landscaping work, New plants were planted, and crushed-decorative stones replaced asphalt cover.

Gorgeous park on the boulevard. So clean and nicely kept. The Caspian sea in the background and mini Venice right by, it's a place one has to visit. You can stroll through the park or by the sea. Lots of food kiosks so you can eat while watching the gorgeous sea.

BAKU BOULEVARD PARK is not only a perfect place to standby and relax but also a place to walk in slow pace to enjoy the beauty and the air coming from the Caspian Sea. The Park is huge, full of Green Trees and Flowers and there are also beautiful Bistro and Restaurants where you can taste traditional recipes. We were there in December 2019 and usually stroll in the evening. Children are laughing, giggling and playing all around running here and there enjoying the playground and the beautiful Christmas lighting. There is always life in the park not only during the day but it is much to enjoy in the evening when the Lights are on. Snow white and Santa inviting people to dance with them. Nothing to worry to walk during night time because Police are every where patrolling. In short, People enjoy life in the Park..
