Dizin Ski Resort in Iran is a great place to learn skiing

E-mail Print


If you are planning a trip this winter be sure to check out Dizin. This is a great ski resort just two hours drive from Tehran and has excellent powdery snow. The skiing is spectacular. The instructors are great and best of all inexpensive. So what is the down side? There is not much to do after the skiing is over. So take a book along. But the place is definitely worth giong to.

Iran is opening up to the world and very soon Dizin will be on the itinerary of every skiing fan. Get there before the crowds build up. The best time to go is from December to March.

Dubai will welcome 2017 with a spectacular fireworks display at the Downtown Dubai New Year’s Eve Gala. Celebrating national pride through a series of themed fireworks crescendos, the New Year’s Eve Gala by Emaar Properties will be a joyous visual performance set against the night-sky of Dubai.

Precisely choreographed to a sound-track which has been specially developed for the celebration, the pyrotechnics display will bring to life several milestone moments and artistic interpretations in fireworks of a falcon flying high, swirling comets, and Arabian dance forms, among others.

Specialized red and white comet shows and LED shows will be displayed from Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera and various other buildings in Downtown Dubai using the latest technologies.

The music for the fireworks is light-hearted and inspired by Middle Eastern melodies, with a series of compelling crescendos that match the scale of the fireworks.

To be broadcast live, the entire sequence of the fireworks, all the way up to Dubai Creek Harbour, can be watched on big screens in Downtown Dubai as well as online at www.mydubainewyear.com

There will also be a Twitter Livestream of New Year’s Eve Gala; to watch, follow @MyDowntownDubai

Special viewing galleries will be set up for visitors to Downtown Dubai to take part in the celebration. If you are planning to visit Dubai to see this spectacular, make sure you arrive before 6pm and use public transport as traffic is likely to be chaotic.

The first major exhibition of Qurans in the U.S., “The Art of the Qur’an: Treasures from the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts” opened at the Smithsonian’s Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 22 2016. If you are planning a trip to Washington DC over the next few months be sure to visit as the exhibition runs thru Feb. 20, 2017.

The exhibition has been organized by the Sackler and the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art in collaboration with the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts in Istanbul. It features more than 60 Qur’ans, among the most important ever produced from the Arab world, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, including works from the permanent collection of the Freer and Sackler galleries plus a number of long-term loans.

Celebrated for their superb calligraphy and lavish illumination, the manuscripts span almost 1,000 years of history—from eighth-century Damascus, Syria, to 17th-century Istanbul.

This landmark exhibition tells the individual stories of some of these extraordinary manuscripts, their makers and their owners. Visitors will learn how the Qur’an was transformed from an orally transmitted message into a fixed text, transcribed and illuminated by some of the most skilled artists of the Islamic world and treasured and disseminated by sultans and viziers over centuries.

Koç Holding is the exhibition’s principal sponsor, with additional support provided by Turkish Airlines, Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute, and Aydin Doğan Foundation. The exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Republic of Turkey.
