The Old City is the most ancient part of Baku, which is surrounded by walls. You can visit Maiden Tower or Shirvanshahs' Palace, narrow and picturesque streets and old houses. Very impressive!

It is good that the old City was kept and rebuild with new small shops, coffee places with the pebble streets. It is nice to walk around and learn about the history when visiting the mayor sites.

It was interesting to visit the old city and walk down the winding lanes. Done in a couple of hours, though. No need to spend a whole lot longer.
