Hello dear friends!
I want to share some information with you!
Azerbaijan is one of the oldest countries in the world, with a rich and ancient history. A state system formed in the 9th century B.C. The Manna state reached high economic and cultural levels. The Medes conquered Manna in the first part of the 6th century B.C. The name of the country comes from the name Atropatena ruler –Atropat. Later it became Azerbaijan. In the 5th century B.C. the Azerbaijan state became strong again. In the medieval centuries the Gara goyunly, ag goyunly and Sefevids states were in power. In the 18th century a number of independent states – khanates appeared. May 28, 1918 is the day of establishing the Independent Azerbaijan Republic. It lived for only 23 months. Troops of the 11th Red Army came to Baku. In December, 1992 Azerbaijan bcame a part of the former USSR. In 1991 Azerbaijan gained its independence again. It opened a new stage in the history of Azerbaijan.
Baku is the capital and the largest city of Azerbaijan. It is on the southern shore of the Apsheron peninsula. The origin of the name Baku comes from “bad kube”-“city of winds”.
The center of Baku is the old town. It is also a Fortrss. In the old town you can see narrow alleys and ancient buildings: the palace of of Shirvanshahs, two caravansarays (ancient inns),the 11th century Maiden’s Tower, the baths and the Djuma Mosque. The town also has dozens of small mosques. These places are among the most visited sights in Baku.
The southern part of the old city has interesting art and architecture. Fine arts, history and literature museums are here.
Modern Baku has eleven districts and 48 townships. Among these are townships on islands in the bay and one island town, “Oil Rocks”, built on stilts in the Caspian Sea .
This is "Qiz_Qalasi" the tower in Baki.
