Baku Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 11 photos
I had a VT-er friend visiting from the US recently and he told me I must put this tip on VT. So here it is – there is a Museum of Miniature Books in the Old Town in Baku. The founder is Zarifa Salahova and all of the books belong to her personal collection. 3,700 miniature books are displayed in the museum and about 1,500 books are at her home. Books are in different languages, published in different parts of the world. The smallest book in the world, also displayed here, is 3.5 mm by 3.5 and made in Japan. You can open it with tweezers and read it with a magnifying glass. The museum is full of really interesting and tiny little books and the girl sitting at the registration desk offers a tour in Azeri, Russian and English languages. The entrance is free but you can leave some donation in the small box when upon exit.
