Map of Iran.

Much of the country is rugged terrain, subject to severe earthquake activity, while central Iran is predominately desert.


Persian carpets are still considered among the most valuable in the world, because of the considerable skill of the Iranian weavers.

The Persian Empire was founded by Cyrus the Great, the self-proclaimed king of Persia, in 550 BC. His tomb can still be seen at Pasargadae.

The capital of the Persian Empire, Persepolis, was situated in the dry mountainous region of south-western Iran.

Much of the architecture of the city has been preserved, due to the favourable climate and restoration work on the ruins by dedicated archaeologists.

The Persian Empire never managed to encompass Greece, but Alexander the Great took Persia in the 4th century BC.

After the death of Alexander the Great, in 323 BC, there were many struggles for control of Persia.
