Baku: to the future...

This weekend sees an annual cultural event: the Eurovision Song Contest.
It is being held in Baku: the capital of Azerbaijan

Richard Allaway and I saw this poster in the back streets of Geneva a couple of weeks ago while heading for some fondue... The main image shows the famous 'flame towers'. There's some great architecture in the city, although there are some people who are concerned about certain issues regarding democracy in the country.

  1. UNITED KINGDOM
  2. HUNGARY
  3. ALBANIA
  4. LITHUANIA
  5. BOSNIA and HERZEGOVINA
  6. RUSSIA
