All of our members are encouraged to exchange tips and recommendations to make the process of relocating as smooth and stress-free as possible. We hope you will choose to become part of this knowledge-pooling initiative by joining InterNations and sharing your own experiences of life in Azerbaijan. Many of our members have used the InterNations community to find answers to a variety of key questions, such as the best areas for expats in Baku, the etiquette of shopping and socializing in this secular Muslim nation and the quality of healthcare in Azerbaijan. A diverse, enterprising nation sitting at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, Azerbaijan offers a rich and fascinating array of experiences to the adventurous expat, from walking through the fountain square at the heart of Baku to sampling a pot of freshly brewed Azerbaijani tea.
