Tabriz

Tabriz
The provincial capital of Eastern Azerbaijan, in 310 km southeast of Bazargan (Iran- Turkey frontier), Tabriz is in a valley to the north of the long ridge of Mount Sahand. By virtue of its situation, Tabriz has an agreeable and pleasant summer climate, but it’s extremely cold in winter. Tabriz is a metropolitan area that has about a population of 1.8 million. The population consists mostly of Iranian Azerbaijanis who speak the language. The city is famous for its handicrafts, including hand-woven rugs and jewelry. It is known for locally made confectioneries, chocolates, dried nuts, and traditional food. The city where many kings have selected as the capital of Iran in thousand years ago has a long and turbulent history with its oldest civilization dating back to 1,500 BC. Remarkably, Qajar kings have paid attention to this city and the role of Tarbiz was crucial in Iranian conditional revolution at that time. It contains many historical monuments representing the transition of Iranian architecture in its long historical timelines. In addition, the city has been selected as the tourism capital of the Islamic World in 2018. Some beautiful place in Tbariz :
