Despite a reputation for political unrest and religious conflicts, Iran is a surprisingly rewarding country for travellers. Those who go out on a limb and take a trip to this diverse and beautiful country, will see people and places that are at a stark contrast to newspaper images of war and violence. With deserts, forests, mountains and valleys, the country formerly known to the Western world as Persia, is a land of stunning landscapes and a complex history. The modern capital, Tehran, is located towards the North, close to the Caspian Sea. To the West, Hamedan is one of the oldest cities in the world and the capital of the ancient Medes.
