Isfahan, located in the center of the country, is perhaps Iran’s most touristy city, famous for its Islamic architecture, covered bridges, palaces, and mosques.



There are also beautiful mosques here, like the dreamy Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque.



Persepolis was the capital of the Achaemenid Empire, dating to 515 B.C. The ancient city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.



Incredible reliefs are carved into the rocks at Persepolis.



Several famous Persian poets are buried in Shiraz in elaborate tombs. This is the mausoleum of Saadi, a 13th-century poet.



There are also gorgeous mosques here, such as the Nasir al-Mulk Mosque.



Shiraz, known as the city of love and Persian poetry, is another city tourists love. It's home to the historic Eram Garden (Garden of Paradise).



Shemshak Ski Resort is less than an hour from Tehran. Wealthy Tehranis love to escape here on the weekends.

Beautiful places. :smitten:

And is this the Maidan that Shah Abbas constructed?? If this is the famous Maidan there is also supposed to be a Charbagh somewhere near it... Is the Charbagh included in the picture??

Yes it's called Naqsh-e Jahan Square and it was built during Shah Abbas the great. It's somehow close to charbagh basically naghsh jahan, chehelsotoon, chahar bagh and siosepol bridge are close each other. These are the most famous and historical places in Isfahan.

A ton of people I know go there for Ziarat every year. Personally would love to go and see the glass mosque someday, looks stunning in the pictures.
