Maiden Tower

Maiden Tower

A trip to Baku is incomplete without ascending Azerbaijan’s most well-known landmark and the heart of the city’s historical significance: the Maiden Tower or Giz Galasi, as it is known locally. This iconic structure, located in the Old City, is a hub of activity, frequented by both locals and tourists alike. Constructed as part of Baku’s fortified city in the 12th century, the Maiden Tower derives its name from its impregnability and is better known as the “Virgin Tower.” It is a UNESCO world heritage site and forms part of the Old City and Shirvanshahs’ Palace listing. Climbing the tower just before sunset offers a stunning panoramic view of Baku’s capital and the Old City that should not be missed.

Mud Volcanoes

Gobustan National Park is Azerbaijan’s second UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist attraction that draws thousands of visitors every year. This awe-inspiring site is a vast expanse of land peppered with bubbling mud volcanoes, anthropological sites, and simmering lakes, offering visitors a truly otherworldly experience. With approximately 300 mud volcanoes located in Azerbaijan’s coastal areas, on its islands, and in the sea, which represents around 30% of the world’s total, it is a major reason for choosing Azerbaijan as a travel destination.

Flame Towers

The Flame Towers not only enhance Baku’s cityscape but also pay homage to its rich history and promising future. The design of these structures is inspired by Azerbaijan’s history of fire worship and takes the shape of a flame. The towers are adorned with LED screens that simulate the movement of fire, making them an impressive sight visible from almost anywhere in the city. We recommend visiting the TV tower located above for the best panoramic view of the Flame Towers.
