Situated between the Indian Peninsula and the Mediterranean, Iran has four thousands of years been a cross-road of cultures. The early history of man in Iran goes back well beyond the Neolithic period. This prehistoric life eventually hosted the Persian Empire, founded by Cyrus the Great when ruled much later by the Achaemenids, the Parthians, and the Sassanids. More than 5000 years of interaction between human and nature, nature and culture, with all common ceremonies and traditions made a civilization which is worth to be known as cradle of civilizations. Ancient capitals (Persepolice, Pasargad, Susa), the palaces, fortresses, tombs, and the bas relieves discovered all over the country are proof of this. Thousands of historical sites and monuments, sky blue domes of Islamic mosques with their magnificent architecture and breath taking decorations, almost 10 registered UNESCO world heritage sites, trace of ancient traditions and customs and the people who are famous for their hospitality are now laid in the base of a modern and sophisticated country which can host the genuine travelers from all around the world.
