The Boomtown district of Baku was erected towards the end of the 19th century, has interesting beaux-arts architecture; there are numerous mansions built by oil barons, and other grand buildings built during the oil boom that began in the 1870s. Fine arts, history, and literature museums are located there, all housed in the mansions of pre-Soviet millionaires.
Baku City hall is a good example of what you'll find in the boomtown district.
