So, what to do during the weekend in Baku, Azerbaijan? Why not enjoy some horseback riding! 🙂
There’s an Elite Horse Club (also known as Bine Atciliq Merkezi), located very close to the capital, on the Airport highway. (It takes less that 30 min. to get there from Baku city center.)
The place is perfect for those days on which you crave to escape the city and experience something new. Perfect for family walks and kids activities.
Kids can enjoy a pony ride, while the adults sip refreshing black tea next to the hippodrome. Also, grown-ups can ride magnificent horse breeds, and there’s even a separate hippodrome meant just for that. Prices are pretty acceptable: 10 AZN for 10 minutes.
Polo events are also being held there. Stay informed for upcoming events from the Elite Horse & Polo Club Facebook page.
Apart from horseback riding, there’s also a kids playground, polo arena and restaurant.
The Elite Events Hall is also located there and offers a beautiful interior for various events and celebrations.
So, if you’re wondering where to escape for the weekend, here’s an option for you! Even if you’re not into horseback riding, you can still enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, right? 🙂
By the way, I got brave last time and recorded my very first vlog ever! Don’t judge too hard, but if you’re curious and want to take a look, here it is:
