Life in Persia!

Iran is a country in Central Asia and Western Asia, before which the country was known to the Western world as Persia. Both "Persia" and "Iran" are used interchangeably in cultural contexts; however, "Iran" is the name used officially in political contexts. Tehran is the capital, the country's largest city and the political, cultural, commercial and industrial centre of the nation.

Tehran is a big city & everyday life is not that different from life in any other large city around the world. With a population of around 9 million in the city and 16 million in the wider metropolitan area, Tehran is the most populous city of Iran, the 2nd-most populous city in Western Asia and the 3rd-largest metropolitan area in the Middle East. It is home to many historical collections, such as the royal complexes & famous landmarks.
