Governor`s Garden, which is the oldest and most beautiful park in Baku, is near the small east wall of the old town (Icheri Sheher) between the east city gate and Azneft Square
In Azerbaijan language «Icheri Sheher» means «inner city», that is a city within the fortified walls. As any important medieval town, Baku, after it became the capital Baku Khanate in 15 century, was encircled by a strong fortified wall
The Maiden Tower is rightly considered the most interesting tourist attraction of Baku. It is located near the embankment in the center of the old town Icheri Sheher. It can be seen from the walking alleys of the Oilmen`s Avenue going along the Bay of Baku
Memorial Nagorny (Upper) Park is located high above the coastal area of Baku, and you can have a wonderful view of the Bay of Baku with Primorsky Boulevard, the old town Icheri Sheher, the Maiden Tower and the Sirvanshakh`s Palace
Minarets and impressive buildings of the Shirvanshah`s Palace are in the heart of old town (Icheri Sheher) and you should visit this place.
