Baku city tour
The tour begins with a visit to the city's observation site, located on the Nagorny Park, from where a magnificent view of the whole city opens. Next is the descent on a fun funicular to the coastal park, visiting the Old City - "Icheri Sheher" ("Icheri Sheher" means the inner city). Several dozens of historical and architectural monuments are concentrated on the territory of Icherisheher, the area of which is 22 hectares, including the Shirvanshahs Palace, the symbol of the city of Baku - the Maiden Tower, and the place of rest for the merchants Karavan-saray. After lunch, we are waiting for an excursion to the historical and artistic reserve of Gobustan, where the evidence of the people who inhabited this region in the past is perfectly preserved: rock paintings, tombstones, burial mounds, parking lots, residential buildings, etc. The age of the most ancient of them dates back to the X-VIII century BC. Nearby is one of the stones-tambourines, which are called gaval chalan dash. It is an established huge plate. When you tap, the stone produces clear rhythmic sounds. It is believed that it was used during ritual dances and rituals. A visit to Gobustan will take you to another world, the world of the past, and immerse in the atmosphere of the thousand-year history of mankind. The road to Gobustan passes through the village of Bibi Heybat, where in 1890 the world's first industrial oil production was started. There was also shooting one of the films about the famous agent 007 James Bond.
