The Islamic Republic of Iran
The Islamic Republic of Iran was previously a constitutional monarchy ruled by a shah; from 1906 to 1979.
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.
You can't bring duty-free alcoholic beverages into Iran, but a laptop is ok; as long as it has no gambling and debauchery paraphernalia on the hard drive.
Visit the official website of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran/a> for the latest word from the Iranian Government.
