Isfahan Travel Guide

Having various natural landscapes and archaeological sites, Isfahan proves to be more challenging to be put into words. From the fabled mosques, hundred-meters-wide bridges, and magnificent squares to the narrow hallowed alleys dead-ended, Isfahan easily excels ordinary catchy titles and short bios!

The rise of the Safavid Empire in Persia was an epic turning point for Isfahan to be turned into one of the most prominent cities in Iran. Having wise rulers like Shah Tahmasb and Shah Abbas, waves of cultural and religious reforms brought about thousands of peasants migrating to the town and the expansion of the city.
