While it may not be an obvious travel destination due to politics and the unrest within the Middle East, Iran is a land of ancient wonders that tourists can explore safely as long as they respect the travel advice of authorities. Iran’s history as the centre of the Persian Empire is one of the key reasons to visit, with the breathtaking ruins of Persepolis being a particularly awe-inspiring sight. The Golestan Palace in the capital of Tehran is another true wonder and was the seat of government during the Qajar era. While in the city, you will also be able to see the Milad Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the world, as well as experience Tehran’s bustling markets. Meidan Emam in the city of Esfahan is also one of the biggest public squares in the world and the perfect place to enjoy the fabulous architecture which makes Iran such a striking country.
