Dear Christine, thank You for reviewing us. Obviously You were unlucky because of weather condition on your activity date, and it looks like You are not much interested in history. Actually your review is a big disrespect to Azerbaijan and Azerbaijani citizens: Alley of Martyrs in Highland Park Baku is the cemetery and memorial park of Azerbaijani civil people who were killed on 20th January 1990 by russian soviet army.
