Tehran

Things to do - general

Tehran is the capital of Iran and Tehran Province. With a population of around 9 million in the city and 16 million in the wider metropolitan area, Tehran is the largest city and urban area of Iran, the 2nd-largest city in Western Asia, and the 3rd-largest in the Middle East. It is ranked 29th in the world by the population of its metropolitan area.

In the Classical era, part of the present-day city of Tehran was occupied by a Median city which in the Avesta occurs as Rhaga. It was destroyed by the Mongols in the early 13th century, and remains now as a city in Tehran Province, located towards the southern end of the modern-day city of Tehran.

Tehran was first chosen as the capital of Iran by Agha Mohammad Khan of the Qajar dynasty in 1796, in order to remain within close reach of Iran’s territories in the Caucasus, before being separated from Iran as a result of the Russo-Persian Wars, and to avoid the vying factions of the previously ruling Iranian dynasties. The capital has been moved several times throughout the history, and Tehran is the 32nd national capital of Iran.

The city was the seat of the Qajars and Pahlavis, the two last imperial dynasties of Iran. It is home to many historical collections, such as the royal complexes of Golestan, Sa’dabad, and Niavaran, as well as the country’s most important governmental buildings of the modern period.

Nightlife info

If sailing close to illegality isn't your scene then you might consider going to northern Tehran, just above Tajrish Square to a strip of street food stalls and cafes named Darband. The atmosphere is chilled out and Tehrani locals and travelers alike kick back and enjoy kebabs and delicious yoghurt drinks and dips. Great herbal teas are also served along with ghelyoon (water pipes). This aspect of Tehran nightlife doesn't really kick off until around 10 p.m. because Tehranis tend to prefer going out late. After that time, however, you'll find yourself swamped by people from all walks of life, mingling with their friends, wives, families, sampling the delicacies on offer from the various vendors. This is a great - some argue the best - way to enjoy genuine Tehran nightlife.

Culture and history info

The culture of Iran is one of the oldest in the Middle East. Owing to its dominant geo-political position and culture in the world, Iran has directly influenced cultures and peoples as far away as Italy, Macedonia, and Greece to the West, Russia to the North, the Arabian Peninsula to the South, and South and East Asia to the East.

Thus an eclectic cultural elasticity has been said to be one of the key defining characteristics of the Persian spirit and a clue to its historical longevity. Furthermore, Iran's culture has manifested itself in several facets throughout the history of Iran as well as the Caucasus, Central Asia, Anatolia, and Mesopotamia.
