Have you ever thought about watching Grand Prix Formula 1 event on the Caspian Sea in the UNESCO-listed old city which was one of the main ports on the Silk road? Where east and west together are blended harmoniously, where the old heritage buildings and futuristic buildings get along together and make the city one of the most beautiful in Europe and Asia, still no idea where it could be?
It’s all about Azerbaijan and its ancient capital Baku.
Baku reflects the most cosmopolitan face of the country, throwing up new skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants, and shopping centres as evidence of its progress. But its UNESCO-listed Old City belies change and you don’t have to travel far from the capital to reach timeless rural villages almost unchanged for centuries. Great fortresses and palaces in the surrounding cities ensure that those who leave the capital are richly rewarded for their efforts.
Baku, home to the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, is one of the fastest street circuits in the world with speeds of up to 340kph. The Herman Tilke designed Grand Prix circuit combines the fastest straight in Formula One and some tricky corners through the narrow streets of this truly unique city.
The event takes place over 51 laps of the 6.003-kilometre Baku City Circuit on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
Azerbaijan is famous for hosting major sports events, one of the great examples was 2019 UEFA Europa League final in Baku.
You can take a direct flight from London to Baku with Azerbaijan airlines or a non-direct flight via Istanbul with Turkish Airlines.
