Baku, Capital of Azerbaijan
Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan. Baku is growing up fast day by day. Baku is a combination of modern and historical places. Contrast this modernity with our next stop, a guided walk through the medieval heart of the old city – Icheri Sheher. Ringed by impressive stone walls, pierced by massive double gates, the timeless, low-rise buildings here include classic caravanserais, antique bath-houses and traditional mosques with calligraphic facades. Above a colorful trading street, oozing unique atmosphere, we climb to the top of Baku’s oldest and most historically mysterious structure, the Maiden Tower famous for its many stories and legends. The last Old City stop is the Shirvanshahs Palace, mostly built in the 14th & 15th centuries by a dynasty of rulers who shaped the whole medieval history of Baku.
There are few places on earth where traces of ancient human history are so vividly apparent as at Gobustan. Rocky formations here that once formed part of stone-age cave dwellings are richly inscribed with a wide range of fascinating petroglyphs. Gobustan district distance 66 km from Baku. We organize a tour with a modern car and a good guard. You’ll find depictions of animals, hunting scenes, shaman and group dances. Other symbols have meanings that are subject to debate but possibly represent astronomical and astrological constellations.
