In the middle of Iran with the Zagros mountains to the left and the desert to the right, lies the city of Isfahan. Today, it is an important industrial city with a population of over 1 million inhabitants. For many people Isfahan probably is the main attraction in Iran. Architecturally, the city is a masterwork and one of the finest in the islamic world. The great Imam square with two mosques together with the palaces, the parks and the old bridges creates a mood that lets the visitor feel that this really is the Orient.
