Full description
Get ready for an exciting full day Baku city tour with lunch at a great restaurant. You will be picked up by your guide and driver from your hotel and drive to Ateshgah Temple of fire worshippers. The complex is located at the Absheron peninsula on the outskirts of Surakhani village 18 miles (30 km) from the center of Baku and was revered in different times by Zoroastrians, Hindus, and Sikhs. This territory is known for such unique natural phenomenon as burning natural gas outlets (underground gas coming onto surface contacts oxygen and lights up), where you will go right after the tour is over at Ateshgah. You will visit worldwide famous Yanardag meaning “burning mountain” which is a natural gas fire which blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula. Only a handful of fire mountains exist today in the world, and most are located in Azerbaijan.

Next, it is time for lunch and you will drive to an authentic Azerbaijani kebab house, where you will enjoy famous Azeri Kebabs with salads and soft drinks. Right after lunch, you will walk along Yashil Bazar (Green Market). This is the traditional bazaar full of fresh vegetables, fruits and the green just from the regions. The prices for all of these are quite affordable. That's why locals also prefer to do shopping in this bazaar.

Lastly, you will continue your tour exploring the Old City. During this medieval period of Baku monuments such as the Synyg Gala Minaret, the fortress walls, the Maiden Tower, the Multani Caravanserai and the Palace of the Shirvanshahs were built. These historic monuments were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List of Historical Monuments as cultural property in 2001. You will take a short tour along Baku Boulevard and move to Fountain Square. The name of Fountain Square derives from the presence of dozens of fountains throughout the square first constructed during the Soviet rule of Azerbaijan and is a public gathering place, especially after business hours and during the weekend and an attractive tourist destination with many boutiques, restaurants, shops, and hotels.
