I like both Baku of yesterday and Baku of today. In both times city looks pretty good and charmful but I would like to mention moments I like more in these pictures. First of all its green areas, in above posted pictures I see more greenery and trees all round the city. Today there are also trees but dunno here it looks more dense. Second, I like the way everything is in a harmony. City looks well planned and even ugly Soviet buildings don't look that bad here. Third, I like the rooms of most of the buildings on those pictures. They look fresh, colourful with less satellite and other kind of messy objects on it. Whatever, I love Baku

I prefer Old Baku to New Baku. At least, people were more polite and well cultured

Самым большим на Кавказе православным храмом являлся бакинский Александро-Невский собор.


Собор был снесен по приказу советских властей в 1936 году.

В настоящее время на месте собора находится специальная музыкальная школа имени Бюль-Бюля, школы №189 и 190.

Дом Мухтарова .



Дворец задуман и выполнен в духе «французской готики», каждая его колонна, окно, дверь, каждый элемент архитектурной композиции представляют собой подлинное произведение искусства. Выразительна силуэтная композиция дома, выделяющаяся не только в окружающей застройке, но и в городском ландшафте.

Согласно проекту, дом Муртузы Мухтарова, строившегося неподалеку от собора Александра Невского, высотой должен был быть выше собора. Но власти не разрешили: ведь собор был главной достопримечательностью города, и ни одно здание не должно было строиться выше этого святилища. Это здание оказалось последним звеном в процессе формирования Соборной площади, получившим архитектурное выражение в наиболее завершенном виде.

С приходом большевиков дом был у Мухтарова реквизирован. Сам он, вышедший с ружьем для защиты своего дома, убит.

В первые послереволюционные годы здесь помещался Клуб освобожденной тюрчанки, затем годы спустя в доме был открыт музей-заповедник Ширваншаха, а затем Дворец бракосочетаний («Дворец счастья»).

Церковь Непорочного зачатия Пресвятой Девы Марии







Католическая община в Баку была организована в 1882 году, когда была построена небольшая католическая часовня. В 1894 году было получено разрешение на строительство католического храма. В 1909 году было начато строительство храма Непорочного зачатия Пресвятой Девы Марии, которое было завершено в 1912 году. После установления советской власти в Азербайджане католическая община подверглась репрессиям. В 1931 году католический храм был полностью разрушен.

Армянский Собор Св. Варфоломея и Фадея (Тадея) - Будаговский собор (Баку)




В 1911 г. на средства Е. Будагов было возведено здание величественного Армянского Собора Св. Варфоломея и Фадея (Тадея), по проекту архитектора О.О. Каджазнуни (впоследствии - первый премьер-министр Первой Республики Армения).

В 30-х годах Собор был разобран, а на фундаменте его возведено здание Государственной консерватории.
