Mostly Shia Muslim although there are Russian Orthodox and Jewish
Foreign women should dress modestly, especially in the rural areas,
and cultivate a certain coolness of manner. Both men and women should
avoid wearing shorts as this will attract unwelcome attention.
Although mostly Muslim in population, Azerbaijan is a largely secular
society that views religion as a private matter. Handshaking is the
normal form of greeting. Business cards are invariably exchanged at
any kind of official meeting, and not infrequently on first meeting
socially as well. It's always a good idea to give gifts to people you
meet, business contacts. Flowers, post-cards, picture books and
alcohol make excellent presents.
