Through the years Yazd has become one with its environment and the people there managed to somehow survive the harsh conditions. But nonetheless it’s truly a mesmerizing place, blue-tiled domes, minarets, bazaars, and old courtyard homes with moving wind towers, and of course, the famous qanats or (underground water channels) are just a taste of what this city has to offer. Some of the homes have been renovated and converted into traditional hotels and hostels. A large number of tourists say that Yazd is their favorite city in the whole country, for a number of reasons but mostly for the fact that it displays elegance in the middle of the desert.
Something more than just Kabab
Iranian food is the best there is. There are some Iranian foods that you cannot say no to, for example, kabab, khoresht (stew), ash (soup) and flatbread, fesenjun (chicken in walnut and pomegranate sauce) or anything with bademjan (eggplant), or the Gilan cuisine. After these, you must try the shirini (sweets)… So many things to eat, so many different varieties, you basically can’t get enough of it.
