“nice but small area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

a very nice area well restaured , but extremely limited in term of size , but need to be seen far from the limelights of the new BAKOU!
some traditional restaurant in the area but food is globally average

“empty treasure chest”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

the place leaves you with a ghost city impression and there is a mix of recently polished part with other of decay. The refurbishment has been so drastic that somehow you have the sensation of being on a movie set

“A must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

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.

“City in the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

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...
