Baku Boulevard Walking Tour

The Boulevard is a promenade that runs parallel to Baku’s seafront. This area – popular for strolling and taking in views of the Caspian – was recently named a national park. Its history goes back more than 100 years, to a time when oil barons built their mansions along the Caspian shore and when the seafront was artificially built up inch by inch. As of 1806, the Maiden’s Tower was only 5 to 10 meters away from the Caspian Sea. However, as the Caspian receded, the land along its shore was reclaimed. In 1884, the double fortress walls along the sea surrounding Icherisheher (Inner City) were demolished and construction began on one of Baku’s first major avenues, the Alexandrovskaya Naberezhnaya (Alexandrian Quay), which is now known as Neftchilar Avenue (Oilmen’s Avenue). Our tour begins close to Sabail Castle and our route will go through the whole promenade. During the tour you will pass Intourist hotel, Azneft square, Maidens tower and much more.
