The tower is in the centre of the old city Baku, capital of Azerbijian. It forms an ensemble of historic monuments and also in the list of UNESCO World Heritage.

It is one of the UNESCO site in Baku. The tour lasts about one hour and for students it is extremely cheap (almost free). The reason why it exists is still a mystery and all the formulated hypothesis are well explained in the tower. Do not miss the breathtaking view from the top.

Once you are in Baku you have to visit Maiden Tower. Especially you can get a very nice view before climbing up to the tower as you can see the Tower and modern Flame Towers at the same frame.

Although the tower is the same as other towers in the neighborhood counties like Iran, Turkey and so on, the presentation was nice and unique. In each levels there were some graphic information to help you understand the magical history behind it.

A great insight into the history of Baku, really worth a trip. Well presented blend of ancient building and brand new tech. The Caspian used to lap at its base, now its several hundred feet away!

Great history - lovely whole day trip starting from tower and walking through old city. Scattered shops selling old rugs and traditional scarves, paintings, dresses, and antiques. Great traditional restaurants serving traditional azeri food .... Dont forget to try the pomegrante juice..fresh and lovely

The maiden tower is one of the many highlights you'll experience in the walk around the old city. A stunning reminder of how things used to be. A tough walk but a culture blast !
