I an from Baku, and Old City is my favourite place! It has unique atmosphere and quiet streets, where you can 'smell' history and enjoy old-style constructions/houses/palaces/mosques and etc.

Old city is just amazing. Beautiful and right in the heart of the city. Some says its 5000 years old which makes it more interesting and a must see place in Baku.

As soon as you walk into old town, you are in another world. You can wander around and visit old school carpet shops. Great traditional restaurants and the real story of Baku.

Great for walking...memorial, quiet street with too many scenes for photographers....in heart of Baku, near Nezami st and Bulivard area, better to go in day time.
