Construction of French lyceum in Baku starts

The ceremony of laying the French Lyceum’s foundation was held in Baku yesterday within the framework of the French President to Azerbaijan.

The ceremony was preceded by signing of an intergovernmental agreement on the French Lyceum establishment.

After the ceremony President Nicolas Sarkozy was handed over the layout of project 'Baku White City'. The French President was informed that the school will be built in an area of Baku called 'Baku White City', one of the biggest and unique urban planning projects in the world. The project is noted for the fact that there will be a Parisian quarter.

The idea of French lyceum opening in Baku has been discussed for more than 5 years. The intergovernmental agreement was required to circumvent the legal collision concerning language of teaching in this educational institution.

Very nice developments. I especially like the Fountain Square area en the Waterfront district. The pedestrianbridge which connects both areas it superb .

The only area i don't like at all is the Babek Strip with its uninspired row of small towers. Is it a social housingproject?
