The exceptional position between the West and the East makes Azerbaijan one of the most interesting and colorful countries in the world. This uniqueness is manifested in architecture and painting, arts, crafts and modern designs. In Baku the most avant-garde art galleries are situated next to the historical monuments.
Azerbaijan is a cultural mosaic, its art map as diverse as its climate. The country exhibits the artistic richness of ancient ethnic groups while also playing host to cutting-edge contemporary art galleries. From the historical 12th-century Maiden Tower to the Art Nouveau structure of the Mailov Theatre (currently the Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre), the avant-garde 1940 Monolith building to the postmodern masterpiece, the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre, designed by Zaha Hadid in 2014 - Baku is a testament to a broad artistic spectrum. This cultural hub offers lectures, masterclasses, interactive exhibitions, installations, and performances regularly. The capital's museums like the Museum of Azerbaijani Literature, the Carpet Museum, and the Azerbaijan Museum of Art (the largest art museum in the country) are must-visits for any culture enthusiast.

Azerbaijan's Cultural Diversity

Azerbaijan boasts numerous galleries showcasing contemporary art alongside classical paintings and sculptures. The Yarat art space, with an incredible view of the Caspian Sea, is more than just an art centre - it's a platform dedicated to promoting and developing contemporary art within and beyond Azerbaijan. The YAY Gallery in the Old City and the house-museum of renowned artist Tair Salahov are other notable attractions. The Baku Museum of Modern Art houses works by Azerbaijani avant-garde artists and modernist masters like Dali, Picasso, and Chagall.
