Health & safety
The crime rate is very low. Over inquisitive police are more likely to bother you than criminals. Keep at least a photocopy of your passport and visa with you in case of police checks. Avoid photography on the metro, near the Presidential Administration Tower and halfway up the funicular.
Aptek (pharmacies) are generally well stocked and relatively inexpensive. A regularly updated list of emergency medical services appears on the US Embassy’s website at azerbaijan.usembassy.gov/medical_services.html.
