Central Asia was and is a crossroads of world cultures and religions, with Islam occupying a special place among them. Not only has the region preserved unique monuments of Islamic architecture from the Middle Ages, but masterpieces of modern Islamic architecture were also created during the years of independence. The doors of the spiritual centres of Islamic culture are wide open not only to the faithful, but to everyone else. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists from dozens of countries around the world try to visit the centres of Islamic culture in Central Asia to see with their own eyes the pearls of the East, which were and still are the spiritual hearths of human civilisation.
Iran, a legacy of the Persian Empire, blooms full of blue domes and jars, broken connections on medieval walls and intricate patterns of precious fabrics, the glitter of the Shah’s jewels and the spillage of silk carpets. Contradictory but attractive, hospitable but harsh – this country has troubled our minds and hearts for centuries. Iran hides the greatest historical heritage, magnificent natural landscapes, rich cuisine and exquisite works of national art – and to experience it all is certainly not enough for a normal visit by a traveller, but for a lifetime. When you visit these countries, you dream of only one thing – to be born in Central Asia or Iran in your next life!
