After the announcement of President Heydar Aliyev's death early on Saturday morning, December 13, thousands upon thousands of people expressed their grief by laying flowers in front of the President's Building. The lines continued for several days. Philharmonic Hall in the background was to have been reopened after remodeling on the occasion of the President's 80th birthday on May 10.
