Description

This comprehensive tour makes an ideal introductory taster for first-time visitors to the city, cramming most of Bakus top highlights into a mere five hours. For orientation we start in Highland Park with its sweeping panoramas of the city and Baku Bay laid before us. This is also the best spot for photographing Bakus 21st-century icons - the astonishing trio of sinuous skyscrapers, appropriately nicknamed the Flame Towers. Contrast this modernity with our next stop, 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 colourful trading street, oozing unique atmosphere, we climb to the top of Bakus 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.
