Isn't there enough rain? Or is there another reason?
Since construction boom the number of trees decreased, but yet there are many trees in Baku. The city has a semi-arid climate.

Cause they are used to their current surnames plus they are not so willing to go trough any bureaucatic process in this regard. For instance, I know some families where some people changed their surnames and some still use the old ones.

Yeah, I figured there must be cases where in the same family some people changed their name but others didnt.

According to the preliminary version, fire occurred due to non-compliance with fire safety rules during welding operations. The fire did not cause any damage to the inner part. Only 1000 square meters of roof was burned.

The interior is absolutely stunning, but the outside isn't that great. It looks a bit modernist 50s, like something from Brasilia.
