Palace of the Shirvanshahs, Baku: 3 reviews and 7 photos

  Palace of the Shirvanshahs
by maykal

The Palace of the Shirvan Shahs is Baki's main tourist 'must-see'. Unfortunately, it was under restoration when I went, so many of the rooms were locked, and there were no labels in any language, so maybe now is not the best time to visit. Having said that, the buildings not covered in scaffolding are quite beautiful, however I did object to paying an extortionate camera fee before being told by a toothless old crone that there wasn't much to photograph in its present state... once restoration work is completed, the palace should be well worth a visit.
