International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Patrick Hickey, President of the European Olympic Committees, says: "Great Games start with great venues. Baku's venues will be among the most spectacular ever assembled for a major international sporting event and will provide a thrilling atmosphere for athletes, spectators, broadcasters and viewers alike. With 600 days to go, Azerbaijan is well on schedule to deliver a high quality experience for Europe's Olympic athletes and nations, and the continent's first major pan-European multi-sport event."Baku is the largest city on the Caspian Sea with a population of over 2 million. Once an important staging post on the Silk Road, it sits at the crossroads between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Today, Baku combines modern, award winning architecture with an Old City that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Azerbaijan is a multicultural society with a tradition of tolerance and warm hospitality.
