Description

If the city has an old city, then it has a heart. And it doesn’t matter how the metropolis is built and grows, what skyscrapers and interchanges it is, and how modern it becomes. This little piece of antiquity, like the roots of a tree, holds the whole crown of history. The correct thing to do in the old city of Baku (IcheriSheher) is to get lost. No goals or essential points of the route are needed. Just dissolve in the narrow streets. Yes, there are always a lot of tourists, and it is unlikely to be left alone, but you can feel the mood of the city. Turn off the navigator, remove the card but do not forget to take a camera. In Icheri-Sheher flows its own life. People live here, cook, wash cloths, and kids chase the cats. And what kind of balconies are there! Maiden Tower – It’s hard not to know, and this is “must see” and the main symbol of the city. A flat wall adjoins around the strong tower. According to one version, the tower had a protective function. At least, the fortress was precisely part of the general defense system of Baku. However, the internal structure of the tower did not correspond to defensive functions. The tower has few windows, and they are extraordinary.
