Baku City Tour starts with Baku National Boulevard which is the favorite resting place of the Baku residents and capital guests, stretching for a long way along the seashore. The Baku boulevard is picturesquely planted with chestnut, plane trees, and palms. The boulevard abounds with modern cafés and restaurants, cinema theatres and fountains. From there, You will be taken by funicular railway to Highland Park (Dagustu Park), which commands a breathtaking panorama of Baku. From the boulevard You can also make a real sea-voyage by pleasure-boat along the Baku Bay. During such boat tour a guide will put up the tourists with interesting facts and legends from the Caspian Sea history.

 

As far as the historical part of the city concerns it is located in another part of the capital and is called the “Baku Acropolis”. Its other name is Icheri Sheher (literally “Inner Town”). In actual fact, it is a historical and architectural reserve. The Icheri Sheher is often referred as a fortress, because this island of history is separated from the modern city by thick walls. The Old City territory includes the Shirvanshah Palace, Synyk kala minaret, Maiden Tower, “ Bayil Stones”, Seyid Yahya Bakuvi mausoleum, caravanserais – the Multani and Bukharian caravanserai, Mollahana, numerous mosques – Muhammad ibn Abu-Bakr, Mirza Akmad, Molla Ahmad, Juma, Lezgi, mosque-madrassahs, bath-houses, Baku Khans’ House and also numerous rich residences of the ХIХ century.

  • Highland Park (Dagustu Park), which commands a breathtaking panorama of Baku.

 

  • Flame towers - Completed in 2012, this trio of sinuous blue-glass skyscrapers forms contemporary Baku’s architectural sig­nature. The design was conceived as a set of flames, driven from the ground up one of the main hills of Baku. Fire symbolizes energy and eternity, and also goes back to the ancient worship of this element.

 

  • Şahidlər Xiyabani - The most notable feature of the park that stretches south from the Flame Towers is a sombre row of grave-memorials – Bakuvian victims of the Red Army’s 1990 attack along with early martyrs of the Karabakh conflict. The viewpoint beside the eternal flame offers splendid panoramas across the bay

  • Carpet Museum - Displaying and explaining a superb collec­tion of Azerbaijani rugs, this 2014 museum building is itself designed like a stylised roll of carpet.

 

  • Fountains Square - Endlessly pop­ular with strollers, this leafy piazza forms Central Baku’s natural focus. The fountains for which it is named include one topped by shiny silvered spheres giving fish-eye reflec­tions of the trees and stone facades. And the beautiful statue-inlayed facade of the Nizami Literature Museum

This past spring I was solo traveling in Azerbaijan and decided to take two solo tours with TES - one to the Gobustan mud volcanoes and the fire temple, and the other deep into the High Caucasus to visit tiny, hidden villages near the Russian border.
