Baku city tour

Written By Jeyhun Farajov

This comprehensive tour makes an ideal introductory taster for first-time visitors to the city, cramming most of Baku’s top highlights into a mere 4 hours. For a good orientation, we start in the Gosha Gala ( Double Gates) of the entrance of old city-Icheri Sheher. Our tour continues with a guided walk through the medieval heart of the old city – Icheri Sheher. Ringed by impressive stone walls, pierced by massive double gates, the timeless, low-rise buildings here include classic caravanserais, antique bath-houses and traditional mosques with calligraphic facades.  Above a colorful trading street, oozing unique atmosphere, we climb to the top of Baku’s oldest and most historically mysterious structure, the Maiden Tower famous for its many stories and legends. The last Old City stop is the Shirvanshahs Palace, mostly built in the 14th & 15th centuries by a dynasty of rulers who shaped the whole medieval history of Baku. Contrast to this ancient places with our next stop is Nizami street one of the ancient streets of Baku with its new modern view. If you are in Baku, most probably you will pass from this street. The most common name of Nizami street among locals is Torgovaya, which means Trade in Russian. From this destination, we will visit the Baku Boulevard, passing by the Little Venice with emerald green waters, bridges, Venetian-inspired colonnades, and the unique Carpet Museum.
