alaska4Baku, also known as Baky or Bak?, is the largest city in the Caucasus and the capital of Azerbaijan. Baku is on the coast of the Caspian Sea on the southern tip of the Absheron Peninsula. There are three major divisions in Baku: ?ç?ri ??h?r (the ancient city), the Soviet built city, and the newest part of the city.
A curious fact about Baku is that its average year-round temperature (14.2°C/57.6°F)) matches the average temperature of the entire landmass of the earth to within a tenth of degree.
