Baku - Post Report Question and Answers

Are local sports classes and/or activities available for kids?

I coached football/soccer for a few years until Covid hit. My daughter did gymastics and my son did Judo and rugby. Azerbaijan is known for wrestling and judo, so you can actually get a former olympic athlete to teach your kids for quite cheap. My kids also did horse riding lessons, which are also cheap. There are so many options here that you could have them in classes every day of the week. - Jun 2021


There are some, but most are done through school. - Jan 2019


Most kids join after-school clubs that are offered at the international schools. Violin and piano classes are cheap. We paid around 20 AZN for a full hour. There are more and more activities for kids offered at various restaurants like making pizza, chocolate pralines, art, cupcake decorating, etc. - Jul 2018
