I visited on a Saturday morning and walked from Park Inn opposite Park Bulvar, to Maryter's Lane. It's a good walk and there are plenty of steps! There is a funicular but I did not see any cars going up and down. So the lane is very well presented and quiet poignant. The memorials have photos of the remembered. Once... More

This street was very interesting. There are memorials to all of those that were killed while demonstrating for freedom during the soviet breakup. It was very busy when I was here with what appeared to be both tour groups and locals.

The place is a great place in memory of martyrs...the architectural style, the two burning flames of torchs, the view of the Caspian sea and the neighboring Flame Towers provide a majesfic apot to enjoy...nover miss it

I couldn't help but notice the Eternal Flame from my hotel room at the nearby Fairmont. The Martyrs' Lane is primarily a memorial to the victims of Black January, as well as victims of various conflict involving Azerbaijanis. Two walkway lanes lined up with black marble tombstones with the same dates of death (January 20), which serves a chilling reminder... More

We acknowledged the spirit of Azerbaijani people standing up to aggression and laying their lives for their cause, against Armenian and Russian aggression.

This is a great place to just walk around and enjoy the view. It is very clean and special attention has been taken to ensure it stays that way. If you walk around you will see, not only the cemetery and actual pictures of the people who died for a cause, but a wonderful view of the City of Baku,... More

For an overseas visitor with no Azerbaijani connections, the Martyrs' Lane is quite a moving experience which once again shows mans' inhumanity to man, which is sadly still with us today in whichever country we live and whichever faith. For those fro Britain, there us very close by a monument to British war dead in the First World War in... More
