Shiraz – the city of poems and wine

Shiraz is the city of wine and poems. What to visit in Shiraz, Iran? The Pink Mosque Nasir ol-Molk is not the only attraction here!

Shiraz is a city famous for wine… Or, frankly speaking – it used to be. From the ninth century, the whole area was full of excellent vineyards… Then the year 1979 came together with the Islamic Revolution and wine became just a nice memory.

Next to them you notice monumental wind catchers. The heat reaches 45 degrees. Shadows run silently from one door to another in search of cold breeze provided by badgirs, catching the slightest gust of wind to cool down houses. Welcome to Yazd – the city where time stopped hundreds of years ago.
