... the palm trees and sunny Mediterranean weather constantly tell you that it isn't! Much of Baku's architecture is done in a Neoclassical style, but with a distinctly Azeri spin to it - quite striking really, especially with the beautifully-patterned tiles found in Baku's pedestrian zone, which have a bit of a Spanish feel to it, like something you might find along the Costa Blanca in a city like Alicante.

I then really wanted to go up the funicular to see some monuments, but the funiculi-funicula-funiculi-funiculaaaar was closed! Tsssk! Stupid Lonely Planet.
