Azerbaijan is a country that straddles both Eastern Europe and Western Asia, therefore there is a clash of east meets west. 

You will learn about the history, culture, and legends of the city. I will show you the main monuments and art.  We'll start near the Defense Wall of the Old City, and I'll tell you how the wall has been protecting Baku since the 12th century. You'll see Maiden Tower World Heritage which used to be an observatory and defense tower. It is a place for rituals in honor of Sun, Wind, and Fire. I'll tell you what it means for us and how we perform the rituals. 

Imagine walking virtually with me the ancient streets of the Center, watching the real Baku, Inner city life, understanding where is there best dolma (national food) or tea in town!
