One of the biggest cities in the Middle East, Tehran is a bustling metropolis with a large, friendly population. Sitting at the foot of the beautiful Alborz mountain range, its climate is perfect with warm dry days and cool evenings. All over the city you’ll find lush parks and gardens, plenty of museums and galleries, brilliant shopping, and a rich and diverse cuisine. And while Iran may have a strict conservative government, change is coming. More than half of the population is under 30-years-old and the younger crowd are reinventing the city, which is slowly becoming a hub of contemporary arts with a changing social scene. Iran is a beautiful place, and Persians are a welcoming and hospitable people, with an ancient culture and rich heritage that deserves to be explored.
