Old stone domes, pillars, archways and tree-shaded courtyards echo with exotic oriental legends in Baku’s 15th-century royal palace. Built when Baku was the royal capital of the Shirvan kingdom, it has been meticulously restored as a visitor attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just five minutes’ walk from Icharishahar metro station, it’s right in the heart of Baku’s old city core with the Flame Towers rising on the western horizon as a startlingly modern counterpoint.
