Great small old town, attractive and full of soul of genuine history of Azerbaijan. Everything is tiny comfortable, authentic, simply warm, like home!
Great iconic historical city of Baku. Amazing array of shops and museums interspersed with lovely small backstreets hiding many hidden gems. Very safe and plenty of great restaurants. People actually still live here which only adds to the character of the Old City. Must visit.
