Introducing Isfahan

“Half of the world” this is a very famous saying among Iranians addressing Isfahan. technically speaking it’s not as big as half of the world but because of it’s dramatically beautiful sites,unexpected cleanses of the city’s streets and parks,it’s called the half of the world.Sounds a little bit selfish of Iranians specially Isfahanians but when you visit this city and see it’s eye-catching beauty,you will say that too.Not only Isfahan is chosen as a desired destination by many tourists from different countries but also many locals love to spend their new year and summer vacations in in this city.

Culture and history info

Being the capital city of an ancient country like Iran 5 times in the history has made Isfahan a culturally and historically rich city where people form different countries and culture used to visit and live in it peacefully. During Safavid era (1500-1722) (last time as the capital) Isfahan developed and grew faster specially in architecture and art.Now when you visit the city you can see many historical sites remained from this era and other eras dating deeply back in the history.During Safavid era Shia (a bracnh of islam) was selected as Iran’s official religion.Therefore,many minorities preferred to convert to this religion but yet In Isfahan you can still see a variety of minorities including Sonnies (a branch of Islam),Christians or even Jews living peacefully together and sharing an astonishingly beautiful history which they all had a great contribution in i’ts formation.
