The Azerbaijan Soviet’ Socialist Republic is a generous, beautiful land; its capital, Baku, is a fine city. Having long ago spread over the stone walls of the Icheri-Shekher Fortress, this ancient town seems to have climbed its way step by step up the hills, the shape of a horse shoe, framing the most beautiful bay in the Caspian Sea. On a sunny day town seems as if adorned by an emerald necklace of waves from offshore; at night a starry arc of electric lights along the many kilometre-long esplanade impresses the viewer.
