Nizami Museum of Literature is beautiful place to visit, located in the begining of Nixami street and in front of a park where you can see Nixami statue. I prefer to see just outside cause it mostly is about Azeri and Persian poems and there was nothing else inside.

Nizami museum is obviously one of the most important museums in Azerbaijani. Every literature admirer must visit this museum to meet Nizami Ganjavi's books and most important of all his Khamsa. Nizami Ganjavi is one of the most important and famous poets of Azerbaijan Republic.

This is the best museum in Baku. The museum has guides who speak English, and they take you on a tour of Arabic, Turkic, Persian, and Azeri authors from the 9th through 20th centuries. I found myself anxious to read Nizami's work after the visit, and I am now one of his fans. Lovely building in convenient location near Fountain... More
