What are the pros and cons of living in Azerbaijan?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Azerbaijan responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Azerbaijan appreciate the country's rich culture and history, as well as its stunning natural beauty. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which makes it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. Additionally, the country's friendly people and welcoming atmosphere make it a great place to live. On the other hand, expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier and lack of English-speaking locals to be a challenge. Additionally, the country's infrastructure is still developing, which can make it difficult to access certain services," said one in Azerbaijan.
