What is considered rude in Azerbaijan?
In the West, touching the forefinger against the thumb to make a circle symbolises everything is okay. Not in Azerbaijan culture. The sign is considered to be rude and offensive just like in Turkey. While were on the subject, pointing with the finger is a big no-no too.
Is Azerbaijan safe country?
Azerbaijan is relatively safe to visit but you should watch out for both petty and violent crime. In Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, you should expect crime like in many cities around the world, but the problem here is that petty crime made way for more violent types of crime, some of them involving foreigners.
