    Stop At: The National Museum of History of Azerbaijan, 4 Haji Zeynalabdin Taghiyev St, Baku 1005, Azerbaijan

    The building itself is a cultural monument: the luxurious palace was constructed at the end of the 19th century by Gaji Zeynalabdin Tagiev, a well-known philanthropist and patron of the arts. After discovering oil, he became the richest man in Russia, and he built his massive palace to live in with his second wife. However, when Soviet forces moved in to Baku in 1920, he fled, and his palace was confiscated as state property and turned into the museum that it is today.
    The Azerbaijan National History Museum first opened to the public in 1921, and since then, over 300,000 artifacts have become part of the collection. Among them are important documents that shaped the history of Azerbaijan, weapons, jewelry, clothing, exquisite handmade carpets, old books, and much more. The whole first floor is dedicated to more ancient history, featuring items found on archaeological digs and on the floor of the Caspian Sea.
