Located in the Old Town, Palace of The Shirvanshahs is a must see attraction you should not miss while walking on the small streets of the old city. It takes about 30 minutes to visit and sometimes they have art exhibitions being held inside.
The artifacts they offer and the items they claim to have from other museums (such as louver of France) are all 3D holograms. It was epic failure to pay that amount of money for entrence!
