Funicular in Baku

© Europroject ZT GmbH

Profiles and segments create connections

A funicular railway was built in Baku way back in 1960 to connect the Boulevard on the coast of the Caspian Sea with the hill on which the three imposing Flame Towers now stand. The handy connection is 432 metres long. The stations at the top and bottom were completely revamped. The modern steel/glass cable net system was inaugurated in 2012.
