secular and religious holidays: namely the two weeks surrounding Nowruz (the Iranian New Year), the ten days before Ashura, and the month of Ramadan. By the time summer rolls around, hotel rates drop as temperatures rise, especially in the southern part of the country where temperatures can exceed 100 (38). Winters in Iran are also extreme with very cold weather in the northeast and west, though visitors will see substantial discounts on hotel prices.

The city of kings and admirable buildings! Tehran by its awesome art and architecture will surprise you! Although many parts of the city is occupied by modern design buildings, the central part of the city is like a gem with historical persian buildings!

Tehran is capital of Iran, although there is not much in Tehran for those whom interested in adventure, there you could find 3 main palaces (one is under UNESCO heritage site), and a variety of national and international restaurants.

Tehran is the capital of Iran, a cosmopolitan city with a population of 14 million. The capital city is situated at the foot of the Alborz mountain range and is a great city to spend a few days visiting the museums, palaces, gardens and bazaars. Some of the fascinating museums and palaces to visit are the Carpet Museum, Golestan, Niavaran and Saadabad Palaces, just to name a few.

I grew up in this city, so I'm pretty bias about the city. Great city with great weather(if you exclude the pollution) you can be in the city during any season and still enjoy the city!

Cultural Transition: Karim Khan-e-Zand Av
Karim Khan-e-Zand Avenue is one of the oldest and important ones in my capital city. This Avenue is located at the east-west between Haft-e-Tir sq. and Valiasr sq. The name of the Avenue is a reference to Karim Khan Zand, the founder of the Zand Dynasty. Jeweler stores and Publisher’s bookstore is located in this street besides café-shops.

The Azadi Tower (Persian: برج آزادی‎, Borj-e Āzādi; translated: Liberty Tower), previously known as the Shahyād Āryāmehr (Persian: شهیاد آریامهر‎; English: King Memorial Tower), is the symbol of Tehran, the capital of Iran, and marks the west entrance to the city.

Tehran far exceeded my expectations and blew through many of the stereotypes / misunderstandings that I had about Iran. This amazing city has traffic that rivals Manila but is a fascinating microcosm for the country and its urban center. Large, bustling, and sophisticated. I was only here for 2 days but could easily have stayed much longer. One of the world's great cities and not as intimidating for Westerners as you might expect.
