This is really a must see in Baku. The old city transports you back in time. Make sure to walk through a bit a take in the character of the city.....you'll find small markets and kids playing soccer on the streets. It really is a contrast of old and new.

An undestroyed small complex of the history of Baku. Museums, carpet shops, artists ateliers, traditional restaurants and cafes, embassies and luxury offices, small guest houses and hammams - all you can find here. When you walk here you are back in time...

should be the top place to visit in Baku when you arrive first. You feel the history in every step as you explore it deeply. The Old city is surrounded by walls and inside it you can visit historical Shirvanshah's Palace, Maiden Towen (Giz Galasi), Miniature Book Museum.

Nice old city - small and nice to explore. Try the little restaurants directly next to the inner side of the city wall. Great local food.
