Description

Old City is the most important historical site in Baku without any doubt. The site is located in the heart of Baku-established on a site settled since the Palaeolithic period. It reflects strong evidence of Zoroastrian, Sassanian, Arabic, Persian, Shirvani, Ottoman, and Russian cultures along with the dominant Azerbaijan elements. During our tour we will visit:

- Maiden Tower – symbol of the city of Baku. Some evidence suggests that the construction of the Tower might have been as early as the 7th-6th centuries BC.

- Shirvanshahs’ Palace- one of the pearls of Azerbaijan’s architecture belong to the 12th- to 15th-century located at the highest point of Icherisheher.

- Other numerous historical-architectural monuments of the medieval period such as caravanserais, hamams (bath-houses), mosques and residential buildings of the 18th to 20th centuries located within the property.
