8 The Old City Of Baku

The Old City Of Baku

Posted on March 7, 2012 by kulichik

Almost every modern city has an old center of its own and Baku is not an exception. It is here where one can feel the soul of the city. We are inviting you for a walk.

There are almost no cars in the old city as the entry for them is not free. Mainly hotels are located here. The city changed its symbols. It used to be Maiden’s Tower before but now it is Flame Tower.

The old part of the city is represented by its fortress where the Shirvanshaks’ palace is located. The palace was built in the 15th century.

    “The legendary Maiden’s Tower. Shakh’s daughter did not want to marry the man chosen by her father and asked to build a tower. By the time the construction was over, she jumped out of its roof into the sea as her father didn’t change his decision. Now the sea is 150-200 km away from the Tower.”

    I think it is suppose to be 150-200 meters.

    This looks like an interesting place to visit, especially with the mix of Islamic and European architecture in the same old city.

    I hope the old city district is preserved as itself. Modern buildings inside of it are nothing but what destory the beauty of the old townscape. They should be built outside the old city area.

    How about putting a map in the posts so people know where it is without having to look places up?
