Historical Baku Tour
Soak in the medieval charm of Baku’s Old Town. Visit the 15th century fortress of Icheri Sheher, the UNESCO-listed Palace of the Shirvanshahs, and the Maiden Tower which is shrouded with mysterious tale of a fiery-haired girl. Marvel at the Museum of Miniature Books, with a private collection of thousands of fairy-size books, including a 6mm x 9mm copy of the Quran from the 17th century. Bask in the beauty of Synyk Kala Minaret, completed in 1093 and is the city’s oldest monument. Also visit the downtown, including the State Carpet Museum and step out into the lookout point in Dagüstü Park which overlooks Baku’s skyline and the vast Caspian Sea.
