Baku is constantly changing, improving, like the history of Baku. Old houses in the city center are perfectly combined with Art Nouveau skyscrapers.
There is no single direction in the architecture of Baku. It includes many architectural styles, passing like a pearl thread through the Maiden Tower of Masud ibn Davud of the 12th century and all the beautiful buildings built during the tsarist Russia.

At the beginning of the century, such trends of architecture as postmodernism appeared. It built most of the current buildings and hotels in Baku in this style. The architecture of Baku is transforming. Buildings with a glass shell appear around the city, the most striking examples of which are "Deniz Mall" and "Flame Towers".
