Discovering Old Persia

It’s not fair to judge Iran solely on the negative things we hear. This is a country of vast landscape and tales of empire; an Islamic country that still retains a national language; a country that preserves old arts, national treasures and royal heritage. If there’s one thing the current regime didn’t destroy, it was the country’s remarkable history. Those little romanticized elements of a golden age can be sought out all over.

Shiraz is the sixth most populous city of Iran and the capital of Fars Province. In 2009 the population of the city was 1,455,073. Shiraz is located in the southwest of Iran on the Roodkhaneye Khoshk (Dry river) seasonal river. It has a moderate climate and has been a regional trade center for over a thousand years. It is regarded as one of the oldest provinces of ancient Persia.

The earliest reference to the city, as Tiraziš, is on Elamite clay tablets dated to 2000 BC.In the 13th century, Shiraz became a leading center of the arts and letters, due to the encouragement of its ruler and the presence of many Persian scholars and artists. It was the capital of the Persia during the Zand dynasty from 1750 until 1781, as well as briefly during the Saffarid period.

Shiraz is known as the city of poets, literature, wine and flowers.The word "shir" in Persian means "lion", but it could also mean "milk". It is also considered by many Iranians to be the city of gardens, due to the many gardens and fruit trees that can be seen in the city. Shiraz has had major Jewish and Christian communities. The crafts of Shiraz consist of inlaid mosaic work of triangular design; silver-ware; pile carpet-weaving and weaving of kilim, called gilim and jajim in the villages and among the tribes. In Shiraz industries such as cement production, sugar, fertilizers, textile products, wood products, metalwork and rugs dominate. Shirāz also has a major oil refinery and is also a major center for Iran's electronic industries: 53% of Iran's electronic investment has been centered in Shiraz. Shiraz is home to Iran's first solar power plant. Recently the city's first wind turbine has been installed above Babakoohi mountain near the city.

IRAN
Financial Time's Top 2014 Travel Destinations 

#1: IRAN
Thirty-five years after it dropped off the tourist map, Iran may be set to return to the top of “must-visit” lists for 2014. Its attractions have never been in doubt – from ski resorts to beaches, stunning Islamic architecture, ancient archaeological sites and superb food – but the revolution of 1979 and the Iran-Iraq war saw the country go from a staple of the “hippie-trail” to the preserve of a few adventurous travellers, usually in organised groups. Now, tour operators are hoping the thawing of political relations with the west following the election of Hassan Rouhani as president will give travellers the reassurance they need to return. Wild Frontiers, the London and Philadelphia-based adventure travel specialist, has already seen a 30 per cent rise in bookings. “We’ve been operating tours to Iran for 10 years now without any issues,” says Jonny Bealby, the company’s founder. “In fact, again and again one of the things our clients tell us they enjoy most is the friendliness and welcome provided by the locals.”

The Shah Mosque of Esfahan is one of the everlasting masterpieces of architecture in Iran. It is registered, along with the Naghsh-i Jahan Square, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction began in 1611, and its splendor is mainly due to the beauty of its seven-colour mosaic tiles and calligraphic inscriptions.
