Traveling to a country, is normally started with its capital as the most important city of the destination, where the economy’s heart beats. Visiting Tehran is necessary when traveling to Iran not only because of capital being, but because of the great museums, Royal palaces, Ski slopes, natural landscapes and on top of all, the culture and people’s lifestyle.
Visiting Tehran, you have the rare chance to get involved with the locals everywhere, in those cozy cafés, while trying to buy some spices in the grand bazaar, getting lost through the ornate marble throne in Golestan palace, and every other corner of the city.
The city, was chosen as the capital around 200 years ago after Qajars came to power and got the crown of Iran. Tehran, located on the footsteps of Damavand, with its moderate climate, besides being in a great location to get connected to the other cities, was a great place as a capital. This decision, brought a lot of developments to the city and now, you can find magnificent royal palaces of Pahlavi kings, in Tehran besides a lot of great museums namely the Crown jewels museum as the greatest treasury around the globe.
Having high mounts around, is another advantage for the city both during summer and winter. There are a lot of great canyons and plains on the foothills of these mounts making a good destination for one day excursions around the city during the summer and many great ski slopes for the snow lovers.
