This is where the multi- century history of Baku, its traditions and ethnic characteristics begin.
The history of the establishment of Icheri Sheher dates back to the Bronze Age. The evidences are represented by numerous artefacts that have been discovered as a result of numerous archeological excavations. The origins of the city on the territory of ancient Baku date back to the 15th century and are related to the Shirvanshahs dynasty, who moved their ancestral residence to Icheri Sheher. The old town is surrounded by the walls of a fortress, that used to maintain strategic importance during centuries.
Maiden's Tower, the Shirvanshahs Palace and Residence, numerous baths and mosques, several caravanserais and a museum are located on the territory of the Old Town .
Maiden's Tower - is considered to be the most magnificent and mysterious building in the heart of Azerbaijan. It is located on the territory of the old town and is one of the main symbols of Baku.
Shirvanshahs Palace is a pearl of Azerbaijani architecture. It is the former residence of the rulers of Shirvan and is located in the heart of Baku. The royal complex was being built for over several centuries and new and distinctive buildings and courtyards were added, though, despite its large size, it still maintains its unified composition. The Shirvanshah Palace is one of the clearest examples of Azerbaijani culture.
