The capital city of
Azerbaijan overflows with culture, history and unusual charm. Come get introduced
to the region’s cultural and architectural gems on a Baku city tour. Alongside
an experienced guide, stroll the Icheri Sheher’s historic centre – a UNESCO
World Heritage Site; look out for the best city views from Highland Park; and
admire the city’s blend of iconic highlights and exquisitely intricate modern structures.
Your tour begins soon
after you board the vehicle from your hotel. Head back in time as we stop you
at the first location in Icheri Sheher. From the oldest of its kind mosques and
palaces to caravanserais and private residences, see an imposing collection of well-preserved
ancient limestone structures that dot this walled complex. Before you leave the
place, enjoy an access to the fascinating Miniature Books Museum with the
world’s tiniest edition of books on view.
Next, on to the
Highland Park where you can feel the fresh air, appreciate its relaxed settings,
and delight in the most unrivaled city and sea views from a mesmeric standpoint.
The tour will then proceed to tick off some of the city’s emblematic sights,
mainly Flame Towers which contains three glass structures representing the
region’s fire worshipping tradition, and the historic Baku National Boulevard –
also a magnificent hangout spot along the Caspian Sea.
On your way to Fountains
Square (a public square right in the center of Downtown Baku), you can choose
to stop at the Carpet Museum for an up-close view of its displays and gorgeous architecture
that takes after a folded carpet. Culminate your comprehensive city tour with some
exceptional photo opportunities at the region’s most avant-garde building, Heydar
