Maiden Tower, Baku

(4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Part of the World Heritage-listed ancient walled city, Maiden Tower remains one of nation's most distinctive emblems. Built on a solid rock foundation in the 12th century, the majestic 29.5 m (96 ft) tower seamlessly blends Persian, Arabic, and Ottoman architectural influences into one. Its massive foundations plunge 15 m (49.2 ft) below ground and may date back as far as the 4th century CE. Explore the mysterious eight-story structure, which houses a water well, an observation deck at the top, and a museum containing many relics and stories of the city's evolution throughout history. The tower also contains shops and cafes. Plan your Maiden Tower visit and explore what else you can see and do in Baku using our Baku vacation planner.

  • A wonderful interactive museum, a lot of interesting and useful information. Excellent ability to charge and justify ourselves after visiting restaurants with stunning variety of dishes. Awesome beauty and power of appearance. I recommend a visit to this object.

  • Interesting in part guided tour otherwise rather plain. View from the top is not stunning; the story of the Tower brings you very close to the previous culture in AZ.
