I visited Shirvanshahs with OceanAir Travels. A very historic palace. Nice artifacts and relics. The small shops around the palace are beautiful too. Tour guide is knowledgeable and you will know that he really knows his craft, not to mention his humility and hospitality. Worth recommending. Thanks to OceanAir Travels.
A very nice place to visit in Baku. You will have a very good view from here. There is also a small park nearby, where you can take some rest. There were a lot of tourists in the nowrooz time (March 21- March 25) there, and since the place is located inside the Icheri sheher (or Old city), you will find it by walking inside the icheri shehr. To walk from the Qiz Qalasi (Castle of girl) to this palace takes around 10 minutes or less, while you cross and walk thorugh the old times narrow valleys. I would strongly recommend visiting this place while being in Baku.
It's awesome , but closed for common people
Visited this place with the intention to know more details of its background and history, therefore rented an iPad, and how disappointed I was because it didnt come with headphones. Directions were confusing too. My bad for comparing this place with Dolmabahce Palace in Turkey, oh I should not have.. There's a souvenier shop inside the complex which also provides photo opportunity wearing Azerbaijan traditional costume. From what I understood, 20 Manat was for one digital n printed photo. When I wanted the digital copy, she was hesitating. After some argument only she said she will email (thankfully she did). My bad too for comparing this experience with the ones in Korea & Morocco (Korea much cheaper, Morocco even gave it for free)
For being one the most attractive site in Baku, there's nothing very special to see here. It's obviously all renewed, but it appear like a fake new. Walls and rooms are often empty, and when there is something to show, is very boring (carpet, pot...). Half an hour for a complete visit.
Got food poisoned , the food is not fresh!!! The waiter doesnt understand english! We had a hard time placing the order!
Interesting stories and worth a tour if you are in baku central
Best palace beautifully built with an amazing musem in it
One of the "must see" places in Baku. The palaces was build in the medieval times and the original furnitures are already lost. But the location, the architechture, the walls are beautifull. I liked the feeling the be in the place where the seik saw the city, the ships and caravans arrived to the city...
much to do with history, if you are not BIG on it, then you can use it just as a PHOTOP
Good place , must visit , very cousy, different style , food is ok
Must visit place..good history..price is like 10mannat
Great museum, tickets are 10 AZN/person. most of it is open-air, however, inside is very hot, we didn't understand why they can't turn on the AC. otherwise good for its price, a must-see when in Baku.
