Old City Baku Tours

6 Reviews
Old City Baku
In December of 2000, this popular destination became the first ever UNESCO World Heritage-listed site in Azerbaijan. Home to the Palace of the Maiden Tower and the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, the famous Old City is an epicenter of history, culture and tradition that attracts travelers from across the globe. 

Age is evident in the surrounding architecture—not just in design, but because many of the buildings are in disrepair—and the picturesque streets of Old City are ideal for exploring. Whether it’s the back alleyways, souvenir shops, museums or the palace interior, there’s plenty to see on these ancient walkways. Visitors can hire a guide or strike out on their own. All that’s required is a sense of adventure and some comfortable shoes!

Practical Info

This UNESCO World Heritage-listed site is located in Sabayil, Baku. It is widely regarded as the area’s official Old City and is broken down into 10 distinct neighborhoods, which include the quarter for oil workers known as Noyutchuler and the quarter for clergy known as Seyyids.
Address: Sabayil, Baku, Azerbaijan

The old town Icherisheher

Ичеришехер гласит об искусности умелых зодчих и ремесленников, уводя нас в былые времена. Просматривая узкие, кривые улицы и площадки этого древнего города, дожившего до наших дней, мы видим, насколько изменилась городская жизнь, властвующая в прошлые столетия. Между стенами Ичеришехера мы словно возвращаемся в древность, слышим голоса тех времён. Наблюдая традиции градостроительства на «культурных пластах», мы чувствуем сердцебиение людей, живущих и творящих во имя искусства. Именно здесь снимались эпизоды таких знаменитых советских фильмов как «Бриллиантовая рука», «Человек-амфибия», «Айболит — 66» , «Тегеран 43».
