In the beginng of the Baku city Tour you will visit Highland Park, also called Viewing Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Baku City. The naming Viewing Square is not accidental – the whole Baku, including its Maiden Tower, Flame Towers, Flag Square, etc. are seen from the Highland Park – the panorama is charming!
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” during Baku city tour 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. Each tier of the tower was connected to the other utilizing a ladder. In the 18-19 century, the tower was used as a lighthouse. Museum of miniature books – And in the old Baku, there is a unique museum of miniature books. The smallest book of the collection is in the blue box, such a small dot. The bill goes on microns, and meanwhile, it has 23 pages. A little more books (on the right) are already visible, but still very small.
Another mandatory sightseeing sight of the old city is the Palace of Shirvanshahs, the rulers of Shirvan. The whole complex of the palace – the main building, the mausoleum, the mosque, the sauna, and the Divankhana courtyard – are presented to the inspection. Surprisingly, there are no windows in the main throne hall, although this is the front part of the palace. I can assume that the palace was rebuilt and some architectural elements were lost. The throne room at the time of the shahs was decorated with beautiful blue ceramic tiles. Unfortunately, the pipe has not been preserved and has not been restored. Instead, a pattern characteristic of that time is projected onto the dome. In other rooms, there are objects of everyday life, clothes, decorations. Of course, visiting the museum with a Baku city tour is much more enjoyable. I wandered one, and an exclusive excursion would cost me around the sum.
Fountain Square, as its name suggests has several wonderful fountains embellishing the square. Besides them, however, various human-type figures are established on the streets of the Square, which frequently attract tourists’ attention to take photos. Just as the Old Town, Fountain Square is one of the most lively and visited places in Baku .
During the Baku city tour you will be able to visit to the center for the photos. The architect of this center is the world-famous British architect Zaha Hadid. A unique modern structure will shake you; there are no straight lines in the building, no corners as if woven from waves that soared up and quietly sank to the ground.
This Baku City Tour will definitely wake up your appetite for one of the fascinating cities in the world.
