Baku, Azerbaijan, May 13
By Elchin Huseynov - Trend:
A favorite pastime of residents and visitors of Azerbaijan's capital, Baku, is boat trips in the waters of the city's bay in the Seaside National Park.
A ticket for the three-tier boat, designed for up to 650 people, costs three Azerbaijani manats ($3.5) for adults. For children less than five years old the tickets are free.
The third tier of the boat is open, and there passengers get an excellent opportunity to admire the view of Baku.
On board the boat passengers are offered tea, coffee, soft drinks and fast food. Traveling by the boat, you can listen to music, watch videos, and enjoy free Wi-Fi. The boat trips last 40-50 minutes.
The Baku Boulevard is six kilometers long now, but soon it will grow to 15 kilometers, and boats will run along the entire coastline of the Seaside National Park.
Baku 2015 is the first-ever European Games, an exciting and innovative multi-sport event for the continent which will take place on June 12-28, 2015.
