21 April, 2014
Without any doubts, we can claim that Icherishekher is such place in Baku, which the people resort the most. That is the top place in the capital city, which we recommend the foreigners to visit foremost. Moreover, a lot of Baku citizens would like to go for a walk along its narrow streets. There are so many people, which are happy to pose gracefully in front of the photographers cameras and to make the pictures here. An old city sleeps never and touches to the visitors hearts in any time of day.
