"Who can claim to have seen the most beautiful city of the world without having seen Esfahan?"

Andre Malraux

Esfahan lies at the heart of Iran, 414 km south of Tehran, in the lush Zayandeh-Rood plain, at the foothill of Zagros mountain range. The city enjoys temperate climate and four equal seasons. No obstacles exist as far as 90 km north of Esfahan and cool northern winds blow in this direction. It stands at an average elevation of 1500 meters above see level and it's neighboring mountains run northwest to southeast

Esfahan province has a population of around 4 million, of which 1.6 million live in the city of Esfahan.This city has many historical places some of them belong to after Islam, mostly to the Safavid era
