Flights to Iran

Few countries on Earth can boast quite so many marvellous attractions, such open, friendly people and so thrilling a history as Iran – and yet be so far removed from the tourist trail. High time, then, to explore this fascinating country. Here are a few highlights:

One of the loveliest cities in the Orient, due above all to the impressive Imam Square, with its mosques, minarets and the entrance to the bazaar – and the world’s second-largest square, smaller only than the Square of Heavenly Peace in Beijing.

The vast archaeological site marking the location of the 2,500-year-old capital of the Persian Empire is the country’s main tourist attraction. The legendary King Darius I had Persepolis built; Alexander the Great had it razed to the ground.

The city of roses. A stroll through the parks and rose gardens here is an incredibly romantic experience.

Iran is the world's 18th largest country by land area, with a population of more than 74 million people. Iran is the center of one of the oldest civilizations, the first Iranian dynasty being formed in 2800 BC. Iran is one of the world's most mountainous countries, especially to the west. To the north, the country is covered by dense rain forests or jungle, while to the east it consists mainly of desert basins. Iran is mainly an urbanized country, having six cities with a population of over one million. The capital city, Tehran, had a population approaching eight million in 2006. Iran has the sixteenth largest economy in the world by purchasing power and ranks second in the world for natural gas reserves, and third for reserves of oil. Fly with Austrian Airlines to the Islamic Republic of Iran and experience ancient and modern civilizations together.
