Iran

This country of contrasts is surrounded on three sides by mountains and is one of the oldest centres of civilisation in Asia. The Persian Kingdom was one of the great powers of the ancient world. Its magnificence can still be seen in the palaces and rock carvings dating back 2500 years.

With the Arab invasion in the 7th century AD, Iran adopted an Islamic culture and now boasts some of the most wonderful examples of Islamic architecture in the world. Learning, poetry and flowers are in abundance in the older towns such as Shirz, which contrast with the contemporary Iran found in Theran. From the mountainous regions to the Caspian sea, when visiting this country you will pass through some stunning scenery.

With an Azerbaijani influence in the North-West, the Kurdish minorities in the remote parts of the country and the Islamic culture found throughout, this region offers a diversity of traditions and customs. Foreigners are still a novelty in Iran and visitors are invariably overwhelmed by the friendliness and hospitality of the people.
