Travel with Children

Children are considered treasured gifts from God and bringing your children with you will ensure a warm reception in Azerbaijan. Local people love meeting kids and are very relaxed with them. If you get onboard a crowded bus with a baby, don't be surprised if someone takes him or her from your hands. This is not kidnap but a helpful courtesy.

Baku has plenty of children's play centres, some fair rides along the Bulvar and amusements in most of the shopping malls. Bigger hotels often have play areas and sports facilities. The resort hotels of Qəbələ (Azerbaijan) are especially family-friendly and that town has Azerbaijan's biggest theme park. There's a smaller, summer-only version beside the Quba Palace near Quba.
