Between the 12th and 14th centuries, massive fortifications were undertaken in Baku and the surrounding towns.The Maiden Tower, the Ramana Tower, the Nardaran Fortress, the Shagan Castle, the Mardakan Castle, the Round Castle and also the famous Sabayil Castle on the island of the Bay of Baku was built during this period.This is also reflected in the city's nickname as the "City of Winds".A less probable folk etymology explains the name as deriving from Baghkuy, meaning "God's town".

In recent years, Baku has become an important venue for international events.Officially, about 25 percent of all inhabitants of the country live in Baku's metropolitan area. Baku is divided into twelve administrative raions and 48 townships.Among these are the townships on the islands of the Baku Archipelago, and the town of Oil Rocks built on stilts in the Caspian Sea, 60 kilometres (37 miles) away from Baku.Near Nardaran, in a place called Umid Gaya, a prehistoric observatory was discovered, where on the rock the images of sun and various constellations are carved together with a primitive astronomic table.Further archeological excavations revealed various prehistoric settlements, native temples, statues and other artifacts within the territory of the modern city and around it.
