Babək (also, Babek, Babekskiy, and Tazakend) (Urdu: بابک) is a city and municipality in and the capital of Babek Rayon, in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan.
Before the 1978, settlement was known as Tazakand. However, then was renamed in honor of the Persian revolutionary leader Babak Khorramdin.
As long as population concerns, Babek is rather a very small city. As of 2010, population of Babək contains 3252 people.
In countries like Pakistan even a little village has population more than what Babek has. But in Azerbaijan Babuk is considered a city, not village.
