The walls of Nizami metro station feature scenes based on the motives of "Khamsa" poem by great Azerbaijani poet and philosopher Nizami Ganjavi.

The station, which was commissioned on December 31, 1976, is located in the geologically complex region of the capital. As a result of the aggressive environment over its 40 years of activity, station installations, constructions and decorative-architectural elements have become completely useless. The station was recently partly-closed for renovations.

Baku Metro announced that four of 18 mosaic walls have already been restored.
