You can pay a visit to Martyr’s Alley, located on the higher slopes of the city’s west-end; this is the best place for panorama viewing of the city and the Bay of Baku. Then you can proceed to historical center of Baku city, to its Old Town – ‘Icheri Sheher’. You can see the highlights of Icheri Sheher including the Palace of the Shirvans (the most striking example of the medieval palace structures in Azerbaijan, dating to the middle of 15th century); Maiden’s Tower (the ancient, eight storey fortress originally built as a fire beacon). Walking along narrow alleys you will be able to see historic caravanserais and mosques and imposing mansions of the oil barons, constructed during the first oil boom.
