And where does the money for these projects come from?

I also saw on one of the pictures from Baku an enormous flag of the country on a beach. Do you know how tall is the post with this flag?

Infrastructure and the rest public projects are funded by the government. Hotels, business centers, most of the residentials, malls etc. are funded by private sector.

The Flag Pole is 162 m tall. Here are a couple of pictures of it with the surrounding area:

Let's hope not. I hope Baku keeps with tasteful architecture for change.

What is interesting is that I first heard of this pole while watching a documentary on North Korea. The thing is that North and South Korea had an unofficial race to build a taller flag pole facing the opponent in the DMZ (demilitarized zone) as a sort of dick measuring. North had won that ridiculous race but then Baku came into the game an dwarfed both Koreas

Another thing is that during rainy days North Koreans had to bring down the flag because the structure couldn't stand the load of a wet flag. I suppose Baku has no such problems.
