The most hospitable country in the world, considered as the glory of Islam in which its fabulous architecture bestows on you a warm-hearted, memorable welcome.
Passing through the Dynasties
Having established one of the most archaic of civilizations, Iran carries the footsteps of some the most popular personages of history; Cyrus and Darius, Alexander the Great, Genghis
Khan, to name a few. Although it is understandable that what they have conquered in this region had been diamonds in the rough. Experiencing the glories of Ancient Persia can be accomplished by Walking around the awesome and beautiful ancient capital at Persepolis, experiencing the remote power of Susa (Shush), and taking in the wonderfully immense Elamite
ziggurat at Chogha Zanbil.
This amazing country is possessed with the most outstanding Islamic architectures in the world. Regarding sublime architecture there exists turquoise-tiled domes and minarets of Esfahan’s
Naqsh-e Jahan (Imam) Square draw many appreciative gasps of wonder, yet it has its own competitors in other cities from which we can mention Yazd and Shiraz. The beauty of Iran is not limited to the mosques only, there are also magnificent palaces (especially in Tehran), gardens everywhere yet the gardens in Kashan are exceptionally wonderful, the bridges which are well known as artfully crafted and also many other buildings which shine and glorify their area.
Tehran is a good example of Iran’s modern history, the former US embassy now called the
US Den of Espionage, Azadi Tower, where hundreds of thousands of people gathered to mark the 1979 revolution and, in 2009, to protest against the regime the revolution delivered; yet not forgetting the haunting Iran Holy Defense Museum to learn all about the Iran–Iraq war that so traumatized the country are among a few instances of the places that depict the sophisticated modernity of Iran. It’s worth mentioning that Tehran is also the center of modern art of Iran by the emergence and evolvement of art galleries and café houses.
A New Look at Hospitality
Iran, a nation made up of numerous ethnic groups and influenced over thousands of years by Greek, Arab, Turkic and Mongol occupiers, is a country significantly known as absolutely welcoming. The most common Iranian behavior would be offering tea to all their guests and if spent more time with them it would be impossible not to become a guest at one of their houses. It could be a great experience through which one would become more familiar with Iranian culture that is ancient, sophisticated and warm. It would certainly be a pleasant long-term memory.
