Heydar Əliyev Park

Park in Gəncə

In the unofficial 'Top Park' competition between Azerbaijani cities, Gəncə's vast new Heydar Əliyev Park wins hands down. Along with a fairground, modern art museum, culture centre and amphitheatre for occasional free concerts, there's what looks like a full-sized Arc de Triomphe.

It's at the western edge of town, accessible by bus 11.
