What to expect

Baku is the largest city of the Caucasus region and the most modern city as well. During this one day tour, you will visit places from the UNESCO world heritage site of the old city to some of the most modern buildings on the planet.

The area of the city of Baku was populated even in the bronze age and this place really offers something special and unforgettable for you. The territory of the”Inner City” is perhaps the most interesting to explore:
Maiden Tower is a 12th-century monument, listed in 2001 under the UNESCO world heritage list of historical monuments. It is a legendary place and world-famous landmark in Baku and houses a museum, which presents the story of historic evolution of the city.
The Palace of Shirvanshahs is a 15th-century palace built by the Shirvanshahs and described by UNESCO as "one of the pearls of Azerbaijan's architecture".
Minaret Synyk Gala: the most ancient building not only in “Icheri-Sheher” but in the entire Azerbaijan is Mohammed Mosque also known as Synyk-Kala which means “Destroyed Tower” which was bombarded in 1723 but survived. The half-destroyed minaret still towers over the mosque as if reaching for the sky.
Caravan Saray, Juma Mosque: The Cathedral Mosque was built in the 12th century on the site of a temple of fire-worshipers. Located in the historic Icheri Sheher, the mosque has been rebuilt several times and is also known as Friday Mosque.
Highland Park/Alley of Martyrs: it is a cemetery and memorial, dedicated to those killed by the Soviet Army during Black January and later to those killed in Nagorno-Karabakh War. It is located on a hill in the south of the city and offers views of the Caspian Sea.
Flame Towers - is a trio of skyscrapers, including the tallest in the country. The towers symbolize the long history of fire worshippers that considered Azerbaijan as a birthplace for prophet Zoroaster. The buildings consist of 130 residential apartments over 33 floors, a hotel tower that consists of 250 rooms and 61 serviced apartments, and office blocks that provides a net 33,114 square meters of office space.
Crystal Hall is an indoor arena, located on the coast of Baku near National Flag Square. The construction of the arena began in August 2011 and finished in April 2012, in time for it to host its first major event, the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Nizami Street is a large pedestrian and shopping street, named after classical poet Nizami Ganjavi. The street's history could be traced back to Baku's town-planning project of 1864. The street runs through the city's downtown from west to east. Nizami Street is home to various outlets, from banks to fashion stores and is one of the most expensive streets in the world.
Fountain square is a public square. The square is a public gathering place, especially after business hours and during the weekend. It is an attractive tourist destination with many boutiques, restaurants, shops, hotels and passage. It starts from the Istiglaliyyat Street and walls of the Icheri Sheher and stretches through Nizami Street, also called in popular culture as the Torgovaya street running parallel to Baku Boulevard. The fountains square is a location where the city authorities hold many public festivals, shows and celebrations.
