altThe city of Tehran is not described as ‘pleasant’ by most but a few days getting to know the place will allow you to unearth unexpected treasures. It is clearly divided into the affluent north and the gritty south. Both parts of the city have experiences to offer the keen tourist.
Southern Tehran with its maze-like roads and many impressive squares has many traditional and unique restaurants, teahouses and places to stay as well as interesting museums. The vast sprawl and pollution may be undesirable however.
The northern suburbs boast more luxurious housing, parks and galleries and very friendly locals who aren’t as busy as those in the south.
There are a few architectural sites to see in Tehran but not as many as some other cities in Iran. The city is alive in the daytime with crowds gathering in every eatery and public spot. Not much nightlife is seen and the city is ‘closed’ after midnight.

In Muslim countries there is usually a masjid at every street corner so we are not listing masjids here.
