Flame Mist

Flame-shaped towers, iconic architecture in Baku, represent the three flames symbol of Azerbaijan - the land of fire. Located near Highland Park, they are visible from any point in the city center. Having comparably old, usual buildings in the surroundings creates a landscape disbalance when viewed at a close distance.
