As is the way with the mysterious but alluring city of Baku in Azerbaijan, attractions are just built and open, largely unpublicised and such is the case with The Baku Eye or to give it it’s proper name, the Baku Ferris Wheel. There is no website so details are still a little scarce but thanks to my friends at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers, we have a little more information. I first spotted The Baku Eye – oops Ferris Wheel – in November last year from the Fairmont Gold Lounge and it formally opened this Spring. It is 65 m in height, can accommodate up to eight people in a cabin (although you can also book VIP Cabins which take just four people) and it takes around 30 – 40 minutes to do a full rotation. It costs 5 AZN for an adult ticket and for children over 12. For kiddies under six, it is free of charge and there is a reduced price of 3 AZN for children aged between six and 12. Family tickets are also available at 25 AZN. I can’t wait to experience it the next time I am in Baku – hopefully later this year. Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers is a client of Magellan PR.
