The Old City, or as called by the locals, Icherisheher, is an excellent introduction to the many early influences that make Azerbaijan what it is today. This tour will take you for a walk around the Old City, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site – the cultural center and the heart of Baku is a veritable architectural landmark. Monuments dating back to the 6th-12th centuries and Medieval structures, narrow cobbled streets and sophisticated palaces, museums, hammams and mosques - you can appreciate all these alongside traditional Azerbaijani crafts and cuisine in the Old City. Be sure to ponder the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, as well as the Maiden Tower — no one knows what its original purpose was!
