As this race takes place on the streets of the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, it makes sense to take advantage of the many hotels and hostels the city has to offer. There is a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, with the majority of hotels based close to the coast and the Old City.
Baku has been hailed an architectural blend of Paris and Dubai, merging the Old City with brand new skylines all along the backdrop of the beautiful Caspian coast. For those of you looking to learn more about the Azerbaijan culture, from the ancient UNESCO listed fortress walls to the countless exclusive boutiques, Baku's glimpse at the colourful Azerbaijan history wont leave you disappointed. Very few cities offer such a dramatic contrast along their skyline, with the Maiden Tower juxtaposing the Flame Towers in the distance: built 900 years apart these two iconic architectural giants blend the old with the new, and create a truly metropolitan feel within this Caucasus city.
As the circuit is located in the heart of the capital city of Azerbaijan, there are no campsites nearby. However, there is an abundance of hotels and apartments to stay at in Baku, suitable for everyone at a variety of price points and all conveniently close to the circuit!
