Maiden Tower, Baku

4.2
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. Take a look at our Baku tour app to schedule your visit to Maiden Tower and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

    Maiden's Tower-Baku one of the characters. Haven't seen a tower is not seen. Very well blended into the urban landscape with old city suddenly opens in all its beauty with the motorway. A very beautiful building. There are many legends about its construction from historic to incredible. A good exposition inside, wonderful view from the top platform

    Nothing too special. Visit as a symbol of the old city. The environment is pleasant with its shops, cafes and restaurants

    Looked at it day and night, when it is highlighted. From her streets gone in place of "Short hell!")

Where to stay in Baku

Baku's emphasis on architectural diversity--and its fondness for constructions that put all previous buildings to shame--has yielded a range of accommodations. Look no further than the waterfront high-rises for contemporary luxury, or take a peek at the more storied surrounding boulevards for 19th-century class, with grand hotels and stylish boutiques set in Baroque and neoclassical buildings. A smattering of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses lies throughout the city, particularly on side streets close to the main attractions and train stations.
