The Legacy Of Oil Barons Tour

Believe it or not, at the beginning of the 20th century, Azerbaijan was producing more than half of the world's oil supply. And that ‘oil boom’ made millionaires of many landowners and businessmen who became known as ‘oil barons’. They spent a huge amount of their new-found money on building elaborate residencies, grand palaces, indulgent theatres, and ornate halls. Highlights include the splendid Ismailiyah Palace, the former Empress Alexandra Russian Muslim Boarding School for Girls, Mukhtarov’s Mansion – once a place of tragedy now turned into a ‘palace of happiness’ - and the gilded elegance of the Philharmonic Hall set in Governor’s Gardens.
