Azadi Tower is located in a busy square at the entrance to Tehran. For most tourists it is the first thing they see, reaching the Iranian capital. The tower height of 50 meters is white marble. The story of the tower – which was built in 1971, when Iran was still at the head of the monarchy and the country was Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah Pahlavi dynasty last and usually the last monarch of Iran. The tower was built in honor of the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian Empire. Then he called Tower of Homage of Kings. In 1979 the Islamic revolution, the monarch was overthrown, Iran became an Islamic republic, and the tower was renamed Azadi ( “Freedom Tower”). But under the new government, it remains a symbol of Tehran. It remains so today. A height of 50 meters offers a great view of the city.

3. Azadi Tower is located at the crossroads of several highways and busiest city near the Mehrabad Airport, the old airport, located in the city and is now serving extensions.
4. Tehran – a huge metropolis with a population of 9 million people (and the entire metropolitan area – 14 million). Only slightly less than in Moscow.
5. Stir in the city crazy, but congestion, curiously, no. For public transport, there are separate special lanes.
6. Tehran – in the classical sense of the metropolis. Road interchange, the concrete jungle. Many new buildings, but lots and abandoned buildings (which is apparently due to periodic economic difficulties associated with the various penalties, under which Iran gets). But historically, it is far from the most interesting city in Iran – almost all attractions are in the center and easy to navigate on foot per day.
7. Tower Tehran Milad Tower – the tallest building in the city and even in Iran (435 meters). It looks beautiful mountains in the background.
8. Tehran is located on the southern slopes of the Alborz mountain range that separates the city from the Caspian Sea. The white hats beautifully towers over the city. And to the Caspian Sea not far from here, less than 100 kilometers – the Caspian Sea directly behind the ridge.
9. City and the mountains ….
11. Not far from Tehran, is an extinct volcano Demavend Gromada (5,610 m), the highest mountain in Iran. It can be seen from the city.
