The first edition of the English-language version of Baku magazine has been launched in London.
The vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Leyla Aliyeva, attended the launch.
The magazine is published by the Condé Nast publishing company. Besides the United Kingdom the magazine will also be available in other countries, including France, the United States and Italy.
Addressing the launch ceremony, Condé Nast Managing Director Nicholas Coleridge described Baku magazine as a very successful project. He said the magazine would help to promote Azerbaijan in Europe.
“I believe the magazine will help us to show the beauties and rich cultural traditions of our capital city, where the past meets the present and West meets East,” said Leyla Aliyeva.
“It also includes photos taken by famous photographers,” Leyla Aliyeva said, expressing the hope that the magazine would attract a wide readership.
