Impression of Tehran – The Capital of Iran
The Milad Tower (Borj-e Milad) is with 435 metres one of the highest towers in the world. The tower provides an impressive panoramic view over the city.
Below are some impressions from the city: the Azadi tower, which became the symbol of post-revolution Tehran; the face of the city in Winter; and the central districts of Tehran: the National Library and other sites near the Grand Bazaar.
The Golestan Palace, residence of the royal Qajar family during their reign in Iran between the 18th and 20th century, is one of the oldest historic monuments in Tehran, and a world heritage.
Niavaran Palace and Garden
Niavaran Park and Palace, which the Pahlavi royal family built for their residence after overturning the Qajars, is situated in the shaded and breezy northern streets of Tehran, where the site of old trees gives a green contrast to the rest of the city.
