This green oasis just outside the medieval walls of Baku's Old City is actually the oldest park in Baku and is still often referred to by locals by its old name of Governor's Garden. Its origins date back to the 1830s when it began as a small area of fruit trees which gradually expanded with ever more exotic plants and trees until by the end of the century it had developed into a fully fledged city park. Today it's still one of the most pleasant spots in the city to go for a walk.
