It is a great state (5 times and half wider than Italy) and with almost 70 million inhabitants; the population is to a large extent cultured and anywhere you can have the sense of great civilization, heritage of the rich and advance cultures that have succeeded on its territory.
However here all is dominated by the extremist and repressive Islamic religion, that limits the liberties of every city with the life regulated by rigid religious principles.
The women must be careful to always be covered and not to apparently show some angle of body and some sign of feeling.
Despite this the nation is very beautiful, cleaning up and pleasant; rich of bazaar, fantastic carpets and above all in magnificent city, from Esfahan to Shiraz, from Yazd to Qom.
Sip a tea in that exceptional tea room in Esfahan dominating the whole plaza of the Iman is an unforgettable and unique experience!
