Contemporary Iran, which had had an official name of Persia up until 1935, was the heart and soul of the Persian Empire, once one of the world’s most ancient and powerful states.

Between the 6th and the 4th century BC when it was captured by Alexander the Great, Persia occupied a huge territory from India to the Mediterranean Sea and played a key role in Asia. Its location on the Great Silk Route made it a country of fabulous riches and a highly developed culture. This Iran tour package will become a perfect continuation of the tour of Uzbekistan, from where the Great Silk Road led to Persia.

Tour to Iran allows for Muslim pilgrims come to Iran with the purpose of visiting sacred places, while Europeans are more interested in travel sights: the archaeological sites and historical aspect of this ancient land.
