All about the IRAN 1 Week.

Iran

Iran is undoubtedly a country older than what history shows, since it is home to many prehistoric civilizations; from which, so many monuments have been remained. Thanks to the openness of the Ancient civilizations of Iran to foreign cultures, & learning from each of them, they succeeded to improve themselves. Offering its unique monuments and artworks all across its vast 1648000 square kilometers territory as world heritage sites, this is how Iran has contributed to the enrichment of human civilization; if not all, most of which will be explored through this trip.

Those who have been to Iran know about the quality and variety of Persian kebabs and stews. There are different types of restaurants. You can find new spices and herbs you haven’t seen before, but Iranian dishes are not as spicy as the Indian foods. A moderate amount of them is added to the food just to make it more delicious. As there are not genetically modified vegetables and fruits in Iran, they taste the old flavors. The meat served in the restaurants is usually chicken, fish, lamb, and veal. Of course, you can find quail, turkey, and shrimp too, but no frog, pork, snake, dog or other sorts. It is prohibited to eat them in Islam and this is observed everywhere. The vegetarians can find cooked or raw vegetables at hotels and in restaurants. However, it is better to inform your tour guide about this matter so he could arrange it for you.
