Kashan: the city of historic houses

Located in the northern Isfahan province and famous for its beautiful historical and cultural sites, Kashan is a lesser known city that cannot be missed in a trip to Iran.

After having spent a day in the chaotic capital Tehran, I started my trip across Iran by taking a bus that would bring me to Kashan, where I would explore its beautiful historic houses and the impressive bazaar. Check out what this place so rich in history has to offer!

2 days in Tehran, part I: the old town

The Islamic Republic of Iran, historically known as Persia, is one of the most captivating countries that I’ve ever visited. A very unpopular touristic destination due to its bad relations with most Western countries and its very strict Islamic law, the truth is that this Middle Eastern country has the most welcoming people that I’ve ever encountered during my travels.

I started my two week visit to Iran from its capital, Teheran, a chaotic metropolis home to over 8 million people where the old history and modern architecture live together in perfect harmony. During my first day I visited the old town to discover its busy bazaar, the National Museum of Iran and the gorgeous Golestan Palace. Discover with me the fascinating capital of Iran!
