 A summer’s evening on the New Boulevard, near Flag Square

By Camilla Rzayeva

Baku’s much-loved ‘Bulvar’ has been central to city life for well over a hundred years. Originally occupying just a few hundred metres from today’s Puppet Theatre to Azneft Square, the historic Boulevard has gradually lengthened and in early June 2015 witnessed its most dramatic expansion to date, with the newly unveiled Baku White City and Bayil Boulevards stretching several kilometres further east and west. To mark the event, Camilla Rzayeva shares her memories of the Boulevard and growing up near today’s Flag Square.
