I felt as though we had walked back in time as I approached the city walls. It was a wonderful afternoon walk along the edge of the wall, up and down the cobblestones, in and out of shops and a Georgian restaurant...that I will remember!

Wandering in the centre of the city of Baku is very enjoyable! People are friendly and even the salespeople at the market are modest and not pushy.

The city walls are a great sight seen. Surrounded of history on the inside and outside are always great for pictures and area for a great walk during the day, you can't appreciate all details during night so go while there is sun light.

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so don't miss the opportunity to see something really special. The walls can be seen from various points, and a walking tour will let you see the best of the Old City.

You have to explore the Old City walls and everything within them. With promotion this is as important a living Old Town as Dubrovnik in Croatia. Fantastic. You can feel history all around you and it is a good thing.
