IRAN – Author’s travel to Iran, through art and miracles of human creativity

With its inhabitants, area of shopping malls and tourist attractions, consider this island an experiment for a future Iran. Exactly here begins our trip, in Kish (a tourist island in southern Iran in the Persian Gulf), where you can see men and women in jetski (with a nylon chador, provided by the local club). Iran has recently become an extremely attractive tourist destination, becoming very popular among travelers all over the world. Http://tourismiran.ir/en/ Schedule your trip, check the entry visa requirements and take a travel guide.

If you do not prefer to visit Kish Island, your trip can start in the Paradise Garden of Shiraz, a typical Persian garden. Shiraz is the city of love and Persian poetry. The painter SHAHRAM KARIMI was born here in 1957. He is a self-taught artist, who has also succeeded abroad. His paintings depict the dilemma of contemporary Iranian society seeking its identity, combining the present with the past and the future. Each of his paintings tells a fragment of his personal memories. High-relief baskets and grandiose sculptures. Persepolis, since 1979 the World Heritage Site of Humanity, is the ancient capital of the Académid Empire, one of the oldest places in the world. Http://www.irantravelingcenter.com/persepolis-perspolis/ The ruins of the ancient and evocative city are located about 50km north of the city of Shiraz. Don’t miss the Apadana Palace (built above a stone terrace, elevated above the city, with a large central courtyard delimited by columns), the Door of Nations, the Dario Palace, the Room of the Throne and the Treasury. Our trip continues to Yazd in the heart of Iran. Because of generations of adaptations to its desert surroundings, Yazd has a unique Persian architecture. To deal with the extremely hot summers, many old buildings in Yazd have magnificent wind towers, and large underground areas. It is nicknamed the “City of Windcatchers“. It is also very well known for its Zoroastrian fire temples, Persian handicrafts, handwoven cloth, silk weaving, Persian Cotton Candy, and its time-honored confectioneries.

This is Iran’s most popular tourist town, well-known for its architectural beauty and its public gardens. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGAGPnLMds8

350 kilometers southwest of Tehran, you can find the hypocrite caves of Al Sadr, http://www.iranreview.org/content/Documents/Ali_Sadr_The_Most_Marvelous_Cave.htm , one of the most fascinating tourist attractions in Iran. The cave walls can extend up to 40 meters high and contain several large lakes. This region includes one of the parts of Iran rich in antiquity finds and monuments. The present city of Hamadan is the ancient Ectabana and it is one of the oldest cities in the world. At the sunset, you can start the city tour visiting the Milad Tower (the sixth highest tower in the world), the highest tower in Iran.

The Iranian capital Tehran is a modern metropolis, that also boasts dozens of museums. You can admire Victor Vasarely’s works ine Museum of Contemporary Art (with a beautiful collection of modern art, including works by Jackson Pollock and Francis Bacon, Edvard Munch, René Magritte and Mark Rothko). In Tehran, the Golestan Palace is the historic residence of the Royal Qajar dynasty, the oldest city monument and part of a complex of buildings once enclosed by the citadel walls. The carpet section of the Grand Bazaar in Tehran is a must-see place.

The painter FARID JAHANGIR was born in Tehran. He attended university courses in the United Kingdom and USA, returning to Iran in 1979, where he attended courses at the University of Fine.

Mythological King Jamshid was credited as the inventor of music. ALI AZIMI is the leader of a Persian rock band, but was also the singer-songwriter of the Radio Tehran band.

The coolest ski hotel ever? In Iran. Shemshak and Dizin, (located in the Alborz mountain range), are the favorite destinations for Teheran residents during the winter and spring months. You can rent all the equipment to ski at Shemshak Ski Resort http://www.damawand.de/Ski/Shemshak.html 35 miles from Tehran.

Today, we enjoy sunset on Ramsar beach, at the Caspian Sea. Http://www.irantour.org/Iran/city/RAMSAR.html You can choose other tourist destinations as the spa, the forests of Alborz Mountains or the last Shah Palace. Higher radiation in the area is due to radio-226 (dissolved in the water of thermal sources along with small amounts of uranium and thorium from travertine deposits).

We suggest to stop in coastal town Langeroud on the south coast of the Caspian Sea. The old town is divided into two parts by a Langeroud river. The most famous archaeological place in Langeroud pole is pole kheshti, a historical bridge across the Langeroud river, 37m long, with two arches supported by thick columns.

In 1976 here was born SHAMS LANGROUDI, later becoming one of the most innovative poets in Iran, due to the surreal contents of what he wrote. He published six poetry collections, a novel and an anthology of Iranian poetry. The same time, MAHBOD SERAJ experienced the disorder and turmoil whicht had overthrown the Iranian Shah. He was born in Bandar Anzali in 1956. He is currently a well-respected international management consultant.
