09:00 – Meeting tourists by the guide at the hotel. Transfer to interactive open-air “Qala” museum.
The museum, founded in 2008 at an archaeological site located in the same-name village, is dedicated to the history of the Absheron Peninsula. There, you can see how the Azerbaijani lived, what they ate and drank and how they managed a household over the period from the XVI to XIX centuries.

11:00 – Transfer from “Qala” museum to the temple of Zoroastrians “Ateshgakh”. (literally “The House of Fire”, “The Place of Fire”)
The territory of the temple is known to the world due to its unique natural phenomenon – the burning of natural gas (gas, breaking onto the surface, lights up after contacting oxygen).
The temple in its present shape was built in the 17th – 18th centuries, but the history of the place goes deep into the centuries – roughly from the beginning of our era the territory hosted the sanctuary of Zoroastrians.

12:30 – Transfer from “Ateshgakh” to “Mardakan” castle.
The main points of interest of Mardakan are its castles with watchtowers, technically being keeps. There are two keeps – one being with a round tower, the other with a quadrangular tower. These towers are parts of the general chain of towers and other fortresses over the Absheron peninsula. When enemies attacked, the tops of these towers were lit up with oil to warn the population of the approaching danger. The round tower was built in the 13th century and is 15.5 meters in diameter with three stories. The quadrangular tower dates from 14th century and is about 25 meters tall with five stories.

13:30 – Lunch in the local restaurant.

14:30 – Transfer to “Ramana” tower.
Tower in Ramana village of Baku and dated back to the 12th century. Height of the tower is 15 metres (49 ft). Exact construction date of the tower, which is built of white stone, is not known. It is considered that the tower was built for the purpose of defense and used as a castle during the Shirvanshahs’ reign.

15:30 – Transfer from “Ramana” tower to burning mountain “Yanardag”.
One of the most famous and popular tourist places of the “eternal flame” in Azerbaijan is the mountain of “Yanardag”. Actually, it is rather a hill than a mountain, with natural gas burning on its slope from ancient times.
