Top 10 places to visit in Baku


Shirvanshahs’ Palace

Located behind the city walls of Old Town (“Icharishahar”) the Palace is just one of the oldest symbols of Baku. Built in the 15th century, just right at the time when Baku became the capital of Shirvanshahs kingdom, it is one of a few good remaining old buildings in Baku. In 2000 it was inscribed in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


The Maiden Tower (Qiz Qalasi)

The Maiden Tower is a monument that is shrouded in mystery and legend. The most majestic monument of Baku rises in the south-eastern part of the fortress of Icherisheher. This unique building of the Azerbaijani architecture does not have any analogues in the East. The symbol of Baku was included into the list of World Cultural Heritage of UNESCO in December of 2000.



The building where the National History Museum of Azerbaijan is presently located was the dwelling house for Hadji Zeynalabdin Tagiyev and his family. The palace designed by architect Joseph Goslavsky, Pole by origin (1865-1904) is one of the most beautiful buildings of Baku.



The Boulevard is the must-see attraction in Baku. It is also known as the Seaside National Park and is the favorite promenade of many Baku residents and visitors. Its establishment goes back to more than 100 years ago. Guests are astonished by the city’s beauty and lighting system, a wonderful landscape design, shadowy alleys, comfortable cafes, many amusement arcades for children and adults. 



The Baku Ateshgah, often called the "Fire Temple of Baku", is a castle-like religious temple in Surakhani, a suburb in Baku, Azerbaijan. Based on Persian and Indian inscriptions, the temple was used as a Hindu and Zoroastrian place of worship. 


Heydar Aliyev Center

The Heydar Aliyev Center is an amazing building which represents the modern face of Baku. The building was designed by the famous architect, Zaha Hadid and is one of the icons of modern architecture, which really deserves a visit.



Gobustan is famous with its rock drawings dating back to 40,000 years. This site is considered as the one of earliest inhabited settlement of people in Azerbaijan. In this ancient place you can see the activities of ancient people such as hunting and dancing scenes, carpentry and the images of animals on the rocks.



Yanar Dagh is situated 25 km northeast of Baku. The reason that this place is worth checking out is its continuous fire, which never extinguishes. The flame derives from the gas reserves beneath the land and there are no pipes making it burn.



Bibi-Heybat Mosque
