Tehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city, the second-largest city in Western Asia, and the third-largest in the Middle East.
Tehran is a modern metropolis with a traditional side known for welcoming different cultures, ethnicity, and nationalities into its loving arms.
Tehran may be the city of high-rise buildings, chic restaurants, gardens, graffiti art and lights that shine brightly in the dark of the night but it’s the warmth and hospitality of its inhabitants and the diversity of its lifestyle that forever captures the hearts of visitors.
Tehran is home to many historical collections, including the royal complexes of Golestan (UNESCO world heritage site), Sadabaad and Niavaran Palace, where the two last dynasties of the former Imperial State of Iran were seated. Tehran’s most famous landmarks include the Azadi Tower and the Milad Tower, the world’s sixth-tallest self-supporting tower which was completed in 2007. The Tabiat Bridge, a newly-built landmark, was completed in 2014.
