The Flame Towers
As Azerbaijan means “the land of fire keepers”, what could be more logical, therefore, than to construct a building in the shape…of flames! It would seem that the architects of Baku have been given license to express themselves without limit. And voilà, this is how three 36-storey towers came to be erected out of the ground! With the old town below them, one gets the impression that a huge alien spaceship has landed on the hill. The sight of these three towers is truly spectacular. And it’s impossible not see them wherever you are in Baku. So far, only one tower is open and features a brand new Fairmont hotel. The entrance hall is over 18 meters high with a chandelier consisting of 600000 crystal beads that crushes you its splendor. The 300 rooms overlook the city and offer an uninterrupted view of the sea. With a 5000 m² Espa spa and several restaurants, a stay in this hotel is nothing short of outstanding. In a few months, the other two towers complete with luxury private residences and offices respectively will be open, as well as a shopping center and a cinema. It goes without saying that the Flame Towers have not finished in their mission to dazzle the entire world!
