What do I need to know about living in Baku?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Baku, they said:

"Expats considering retiring in Baku should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high compared to other cities in the region. It is important to research the local laws and regulations regarding visas and residency requirements. Additionally, expats should be aware that the climate in Baku can be quite extreme, with hot summers and cold winters. It is also important to research the local healthcare system and ensure that adequate medical insurance is in place. Finally, expats should be aware that the local language is Azerbaijani, although English is widely spoken in the city," said one expat who made the move to Baku.
