Old City, Baku’s medieval core is a UNESCO-protected site surrounded by 12th-century walls, brimming with history and Eastern architecture. Shirvanshahs’ Palace and Maiden Tower, Baku’s most iconic landmark, can be found within the walled city.

For modern art and architecture:

The Heydar Aliyev Centre, designed by the world-famous architect Zaha Hadid, is the crown jewel in our modern architecture. Symbolising an eternal cycle, not a single straight line was used in the centre’s design, resembling a wave reaching from the ground to the sky and back down again.

For views:

Baku Boulevard is the capital city’s promenade. This beautiful sweep of coast offers hours of pleasant strolling along the waterfront with ever-changing views of the city. You'll be able to stop for a ride on the Baku Eye or float along the canals of Little Venice; dine at contemporary restaurants or pause for tea at a classic Azerbaijani teahouse.
