The Maiden Tower in Baku served to imprison all the naughty maidens that would not behave. Rumors say that it was once part of the city fortification, but that's highly debated among historians, so you better stick to the maiden story.

If you're into cute animals then these stamps are just the thing for you, but be aware that one of them is not an animal, but the commemoration of 130 years of telephone communication in Azerbaijan. I'm not gonna tell you which one though.
