  • The Palace of the Shirvanshahs was absolutely beautiful and the architecture was amazing. The Palace complex was beautiful to walk around and see.  more »
  • The Palace is located in the old town. Not a very big area, but beautiful. It is better to visit with audio guide, which will tell many interesting things from the history of Shirvanshahs.

  • To completely immerse yourself in the thrill of the ancient time-you definitely need a guide! Without it, you can work around the Palace for 10-15 minutes and nothing found!
