Pretty interesting article about abandoned island in a bay, across 3 mln population city.

Nargin Island is visible from almost every point of Baku. Standing on guard of the Baku bay, it is located only 5 kilometers from the nearest coast, but few of the Baku residents or guests of the capital have ever visited it. There are many rumors, legends and tales about the island, some of which are true, and some are just idle speculation, but the truth, at times, is worser than any fake stories.

That’s a bit creepy but intriguing nonetheless. Do I hazard to guess what they used it for?

Those are hangars for S-125 anti-aircraft misses. Story of island is very interesting - first concentration camp, then execution zone during Stalin's period, etc.

There is a big article about this island but I can not share link :(
