This tapering 29m stone tower is Baku’s foremost historical icon with rooftop views surveying Baku Bay and the Old City. Possibly millennia old, its original date of construction is the subject of much debate, though much of the present structure appears to be 12th century. The Azerbaijani name, Qız Qalası, is usually rendered ‘Maiden’s Tower’ in English. Various versions are considered in the imaginative little multimedia installations that adorn several floors of the tower's interior. A better translation of Qız Qalası would be ‘Virgin Tower’, alluding to military impenetrability rather than any association with tragic females. It was certainly an incredibly massive structure for its era, with walls 5m thick at the base and an unusual projecting buttress
The Old City, it contains hundreds of historical monuments, four of which are of world importance and 28 of which are of local importance. Visit souvenir, carpet and antique shops, and workshops of local handicrafts. It became the first location in Azerbaijan to be classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. You can see Maiden Tower, Market Square, Bukhara Caravanserai, Multani Caravanserai, Baku Khan's Residence, Shirvan Shahs' Palace, Aga-Mikhail bath house, Double Gates, and several old mosques in Old town. It is widely accepted that the Old City, including its Maiden Tower, date at least to the 12th century, with some researchers contending that construction dates as far back as the 7th century. During medieval period of Baku, such monuments as the Synyg Gala Minaret (11th century), the fortress walls and towers (11th–12th centuries), the Maiden Tower, the Multani Caravanserai and Hajji Gayyib bathhouse (15th century), the Palace of the Shirvanshahs (15th–16th centuries), the Bukhara Caravanserai and Gasimbey bathhouse (16th century) were built. Baku was divided into two sections: Ichari (Inner) Shahar and Bayir (Outer) Shahar. The Inner City was the main part. Those who lived in the Inner City were considered natives of Baku. They were in close proximity to everything: the bazaar, craftsmen's workshops and mosques. There was even a church there, as well as a military barracks built during the Russian occupation. Residents who lived inside the walls considered themselves to be superior to those outside and often referred to them as the "barefooted people of the Outer City". With the arrival of Russians the traditional architectural look of the Old City changed. Many European buildings were constructed during the 19th century and early 20th century, using styles such as Baroque and Gothic. In 1865, a part of the city walls overlooking the sea was demolished, and the stones were sold and used in the building of the Outer city. The money obtained from this sale went into the construction of the Baku Boulevard. In 1867, the first fountains of Baku appeared in the Boulevard. In December 2000, the Old City of Baku with the Palace of the Shirvanshahs and Maiden Tower became the first location in Azerbaijan classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
One of the oldest parks in Baku got one of its names – the Governor’s Garden – because of its position in front of the former Governor’s House. It was designed in the 1930s and for many years, access to the park was limited for ordinary citizens while noble people, oil millionaires and high society representatives could visit the garden any time. The famous State Philharmonic and the House of Poets are located in this park. The interesting fact is that today numerous parrots, atypical for the fauna of Azerbaijan, live in the trees of the garden.
