Unknown Iran: how a closed country becomes a tourist mecca

Either sanctions and international reputation, or an unjustified association with the ever-belligerent Iraq, did not allow this authentic state to take its rightful place in the pages of tourist guides. And despite some difficulties, which will be discussed later, Iran left an indelible impression and confidently falls into the top 5 countries that are required to visit.

All on the shelves laid out by an experienced traveler Denis Mamontov.

ROAD

For those who have not been to Baku, transit through this city on the way to Tehran will be a pleasant route. We had just enough daylight to take a walk along the local popular promenade, admire the skyscrapers that had long forgotten about the scoop of Azerbaijan, walk through the old city, take pictures at the site of the famous Damn it.

Bajao people

The people of bajao, or, as they are called, sea gypsies, do not have documents, citizenship or any rights.

There are more than a million of them and this is the most unprotected layer of the population, practically not in contact with civilization.

Swamp, the poor and rainbow tourism

Transcarpathians would not be Transcarpathians if they did not try to show with all the fibers of their broad souls that they have – even half a tree, half a plate, half a mountain – but more beautiful, tastier and, of course, more interesting.

Of course, Transcarpathians haven’t fed all the bograchs yet, haven’t been given a drink of wine, haven’t bathed in vats, but they stubbornly think how else to surprise quite picky tourists who want something new. Castles, mineral water, Synevyr, Hoverla, the Valley of daffodils, waterfalls – this is “clogged” in all imaginable and unthinkable tourist guides. Over the past two years, a wine tourist route, military, gastronomic, and a bunch of other delights have been developed and are offered to tourists in the Territory – everything to convince tourists to rest on Silver Land. And this is not enough for Transcarpathians, therefore, local tourism experts do not get tired of “spinning up” new types of tourism in the region, both borrowed and exclusive. Continue reading
