Aliyev birthday day flower festival Aug 08, 2013
Aliyev birthday day flower festival and reminisce of dictator’s cult that will hopefully disappear soon happens every year in the park (that of course is called Haydar Aliyev park) next to the Central bank.

This festival is a big ordeal for the ruling family, it is every year in the mid may and it is surrounded with strong security forces. It is amazing how much flowers they gathered to make this extravaganza. I heard that they usually import at least 100 tons of flowers from around the world, and use couple times that to beautify this festival…

It lasts maybe a week and after that all flowers are up for grabs, accept the flowers that make the face of the old tyrant. Only those flowers no one dares to take…
