HISTORY

The people of Azerbaijan have a rich history extending far back into ancient times and civilizations.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Water

Don't drink the tap water unless it has been boiled first. In restaurants, ask for bottled water, and make sure that any ice in the drinks has been made from bottled water. Many varieties of bottled water are available.

Public Restrooms

Restaurant and hotel toilets are the cleanest; you will probably need to carry Kleenex with you when using public restrooms.

Health

If you need to see a doctor, go to the medical services that practice Western medicine only, particularly if you have an extended stay planned. Check with them about vaccinations that may be required in this country, and to see if your current health insurance is valid.

Money

U.S. currency, recent bills, are preferred. Older bills made prior to 1990 will not be exchanged as there has been a recent counterfeiting problem.

Telephones

Tokens can be purchased from the Telephone Exhange, or you can ask merchants to use their phone (local calls only).

ATTRACTIONS

Sport and Survival

In Azerbaijan, try mountain climbing, skiing, cycling, and many other "survival" type trips which cross the desert or mountains.

Sailing and Fishing

Sailing in the Baku Bay and in and around the Absheron Archipelago is a wonderful way to spend a beautiful day. Sailing tours are available, and includes fishing and fish barbecuing on the Caspian shore.

Diving

Diving can be done on the Caspian Sea not far from Baku, to a depth of between 10 and 15 meters. Divers receive the necessary equipment and training before the dive.
