Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Sheki
While it may be six or so hours from Baku the mountain town of Sheki is well worth the slog.  Just make sure to fill up with petrol before you hit some pretty damn remote roads.
Ivanovka
Ever wanted to get up close and personal with a remote religious sect? Then head to Ivanovka home to such a sect.
Lahij
Looking to escape the city limits? Then head to Lahij a traditional coppersmiths' village two-three hours northwest of Baku.
Old City Hammam
Expect to be scrubbed and pummelled within an inch of your life...
Olimpik Star Centre
Not sure what the difference is between billiards and pool? Don't worry a local will show you; billiards is big business here.
Ultimate Frisbee
Who'd have thought you'd go all the way to Baku and be able to play Frisbee? Enjoy!
Taze Bey
Who wouldn't want a massage with Roman Centurions and deer antlers abounding?
Gunay Riding Club
Mount a towering steed and gallop off into the Bakuvian sunset - or something like that.
Mafia
Despite being an Azeri/Russian-only game it's still fun to watch a game of Mafia; cards never looked so cutthroat.
Hash House Harriers
Run off the excesses of the weekend with the Hash House Harriers; beats sweating it out solo surely?
Baku Entertainment
Getting a strike is oh-so satisfying so if you've a competitive streak unleash the fury over a game - or ten - of bowling.
Football Federations
While Bakuvians aren't known for their football prowess a game can still be fun to watch with the pressure off.
Baku State Circus
Roll up roll up! The circus has come to town; enjoy all its carnivalesque goings-on right here.
Metkarting
If you like your go-karting with a side of disco then Metkarting is the perfect place to tear up the track.
