Mingachevir Reservoir Aug 12, 2013
Mingachevir Reservoir is a huge dam located just above the city and making probably the largest lake in Azerbaijan. Dam was made after the second world war with the help of German POW and you can still find some equipment and boats from that time. It also hosts the largest electrical power plant in Azerbaijan from which many electrical cables buzz towards the city. On the right side of the dam you will find local beach area and lots of boats that you can rent and row around the area. One large restaurant area is kind of falling apart, but they still have good food. I am surprised that surrounding of the lake does not have more greenery. It is huge body of good water so it is strange for the area to be so barren.
