Tabriz (تبریز ) is the fourth largest city and one of the historical capitals of Iran and the capital of East Azerbaijan Province. The estimated population of the city is around 3,000,000; the fifth most populous city in Iran.

With a rich history, Tabriz contains many historical monuments, but repeated devastating earthquakes and several invasions during frequent wars have substantially damaged many of them. Many monuments in the city date back to the Ilkhanid, Safavid, and Qajar periods,among them is the large Tabriz Historic Bazaar Complex which is inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 2010. The oldest signs of the civilization in the city is an excavation site and museum in the city center with a history that dates back 2500 years.

9 notes Away from their families for the new year, a gal from Sweden and a gal from California ended up celebrating Norooz together in Denmark. They met on exchange, discovered both their parents are from Iran with Kurdish/Persian roots, and brought other friends from the international program to celebrate with some Persian food that they made all on their own for the first time :) If this doesn’t exemplify diaspora and cultural exchange, I don’t know what does.
This is their haft sin.

This is a photo of a store I came across while I was visiting a town called Masouleh. This city is famous for its mountainside houses that are built on top of each other.

This photo was taken from the mountain top in the city of Lahijan. All those bushes you see leading down the mountain are actually bushes of tea.
