Repair works carried out in Baku Funicular have been concluded.

Report informs that after the long-term renovation the funicular will be put into service tomorrow – on November 1.

Notably, Baku funicular was built on the initiative of the State Prize laureate of the USSR, Honored Engineer Alish Lamberansky (1914-1999) and was put into operation on May 5, 1960. In the Soviet times, the carriages of Baku funicular were prepared by a special order in Kharkov and brought to the capital. Baku Funicular has been repaired twice – in 2001 and 2007.
