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.

  • This place is totally romantic but the dinner is a real deal, because the pick you with It's boat at the dock whether Asian or Western side, the food is excellent, the staff friendly and the bar in the top of the Tower top has impressive and romantic views. You must book with time. The boat is or ' clok On the boat terminal. There are 3 dishes plus desert, the have 2 menu, but all courses were delicious. The price is cheaper considering the ride in boat, the romantic place and the food. This place is totally romantic, but the best is dinner which is really a tremendous business, they seek you at the dock is on the Asian or Western side, take you to the restaurant, and then return you to the terminal again. The restaurant is excellent and food first l, have three dishes more dessert. All the food is Gourmet and has two menus. The wines have a good price. The restaurant is nice and cozy but there is a bar in the tower and from there, the views are breathtaking and very romantic. I found the price quite economical to having the account the boat ride, the food and the place. Make reservation with time.
