I would definitely recommend to visit this palace. It was very interesting and very well maintained. We didn't take a tour and just walked through at our own pace. I loved the courtyard. There is also a nice view.

I visited the Palace of the Shrivanshahs in November 2017. There is a small charge of about $5.00 and the whole tour is about 1/2 to 1 hour. The Palace is situated in the old area of Baku on a hilltop surrounded by residences. It...More

It is in the old city so you will see it when you walk around. It is small because it is old and King was not that rich

Very good and historical place to be in Baku. The palace built in 15th century by Shirvanshahs government because of the destruction of their capital in Shamakhi in 15th century. Highly recommend to visit

Neglected, inconvenient and not very interesting. Baku authorities could learn from Istanbul experts how to maintain such a place. Charging AZN10 is a rip off for what you get.

Located within the walled old city of Baku. Beautifully restored and maintained. Includes mosque and tombs. English signs/posters explaining exhibitions available.

I especially liked how hands off the entire museum is. It explains the history of the place well, and why it lost a part of it grandeur, but it mostly let's you explore at you own pace.
