Bakkou – the capital of Azerbaijan, the largest city in Caucasus, the largest port in the Caspian Sea and the largest economic, scientific and industrial center in the region.

The most interesting features of Bacau are in the Creta – the Old Town. The most important of these is the ruined tower – the Synkala, the Minaret of Mohammeds Church, built by Mohammed ibn Abu Bakr in the 11th century.

The top of a rugged hill is crowned by the granary of the granary. The most prominent of these buildings is the Castle Castle, which is supposedly built in the 15th century. It differs greatly from the grand, elegant palaces of the Middle East with its smooth, unadorned walls and simple entrance portal. In the main building of the palace, which has over forty rooms, the most interesting part is the Hanseatic seat – an enormous auditorium, covered by a stone ceiling and solid walls, which served as an auditorium. Equally interesting is the room that served as the official reception room – the Havana Hanna. The Dewanah Khene is the finest example of Azeri architecture. The richly ornamented portal, which was the main entrance to Devin-Khan, is considered one of the most beautiful monuments not only to Baku, but to Asia Minor.

At the bottom courtyard of the Fortress is the 15th-century Church of the Shoah. It was a cultural structure for a limited circle of people & ndash; the Shah, his family, and relatives. Today, the Bacchini Palace Orchestra is a striking example of the artistic and architectural art of its time, which now houses a rich museum of history and art history and architecture.

Another unique architectural monument to Baku is the Maiden Tower. It is a tower of a cylindrical shape 28 meters in height with walls of five meters in height. If you ascend the top platform on the inside of the inner winding ladder of the tower, you can see the most beautiful panorama of the Bakina Tower. Legend has it that this is where the daughter of Van fled on her own wedding day to avoid marrying a man she did not love. The maidens tower is the center and decoration of the Bacchini Foreshore, which replicates the Bacchini Foreshore, the Neftyaniks Prospect. Walking along the alleyways, you can reach a five-foot walkway that juts out into the sea, where you can enjoy the richness of local cuisine in a restaurant or relax in bars or cafes.
