The walls have been restored to what is assumed what they looked like when built. Great attention to detail has been ensured to make it feel old and realistic as possible. You can see where the old parts pf the wall have been touched up to give them completeness. Great detail has been included, with magnificent cannons and mechanical crossbows... More

These marvellous walls give the Old City a big part of its charm. They are preserved very well and also the new constructions are made in order to avoid too much contrast with the colors and style of the walls.

Worth a visit in an otherwise soul-less city. Don't come to Baku unless you want to buy an oil well.

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!

The city walls are under recontraction but it is still a nice part of the city and gives tourists a good impression that the people there care for their past.

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.
