We will visit “Golestan Palace” (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the former royal Qajar complex in Iran’s capital city, Tehran. Then we go through the “Grand Bazaar” to meet local people and know Iranian purchase style.

After lunch in a classic restaurant inside Grand Bazaar, we have time to rest in Park-e Shahr (City Park), the oldest park of Tehran. At last, we will visit the amazing “30-tir street” with music and local people.

Golestan Palace, based in the time of Shah Abbas Safavi (1580). But after Agha Mohammad Khan, the court and palace of Golestan became the official residence of the Qajar dynasty. The palace was rebuilt to its current form in 1865. And now is one of the most exclusive historical collections in Iran. The Golestan Palace on July 2, 2013, at the 37th Annual Meeting of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Cambodia, Phnom Penh, was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
