One of the beautiful places of Old city Baku is Maiden Tower. From top of the tower you will see panoramic view of the city. Be ready to take steps up to see that beauty. Entrance fee is 10 manat for foreigners. There are lots of interesting things around the tower, don't miss it.

This is the most famous landmark of old Baku. With many stories regarding its history or name, the truth remains uncertain. But still we have the massive structure that beautifully lies at the footstep of old Baku, facing the shores of the Caspian sea.
No visit to Baku is counted without admiring this place and if you have some extra time, why not visit it from the inside!

Mmmm.... Maiden Tower is in all the guide books as one of Baku's must do's, but I was somewhat non-plussed. Sure, the views are good, but there are multiple opportunities for much better views across the city, including at the nearby restaurant/teahouse, Cay Bagi 145. It's a slog up 8 floors of windy, precarious steps, which require you to stoop so not to hit your head, & the downward traffic uses the same skinny stairway. When you reach the top, a perspex shield lines the tower, so your photos are taken through it. The ticket booth is adjacent - 4AZN for locals, 15 AZN for foreigners.

Great views from the top of the tower. As you climb the tower there was information on most levels so the climb up was staggered. Information was ok although not particularly interesting. Worth visiting for views from the top and of course photos of it from the ground.

The tower itself is intriguing and well worth a visit, for the views from the top and for the introduction to Baku’s complex history as you climb through the different levels. But it’s also the perfect way to start a wander around the old town, best done slowly because there are photo opportunities at every turn. Some of these involve the contrast between old and new, especially with the modern Flame Towers in the background. So start at Maiden’s Tower and roam for several hours - fascinating.

Best viewed from below! The top is shielded by a plexiglass wall that doesn't afford the best viewing opportunities. The tower is iconic in Baku's history and is worth a walk around if you are a history buff. Most walking tours stop by here, to chat about how no one is certain how this tower was named!

Apart from the view at the top (which you can get from other parts of the city to be honest), I wasn't blown away.
There are some small exhibits on the three floors, but that's about it.
If you struggle with stairs, this isn't for you.
15 Manat compared to museums which are 5.

A place not to miss if you are in Baku.

Tells so much about the history and artifacts.

Once you buy the ticket and enter the tower, it had different floors with stairs showing the history and modern technology recreating the past.

Very educational and a good peak into the past for all ages.

A must visit.

As a symbol of Baku, omnipresent on currency and logo's, the Maiden Tower is a "must" to visit. It sits near the waterfront side of Old Town and serves as a point of reference when you get lost on the narrow streets.
It is more interesting from the outside ; the difficult climb to the top is not justified : the top platform is shielded by a scratched plexi plastic screen, which makes good photography of the surrounding view near impossible.
Better to spend more time walking around, it is also more picturesque from a distance.
