Take a Trip to Esfahan

The Persian Gulf highway
Hello Esfahan
Isfahan or Eşfahān (historically also rendered as Ispahan, Old Persian Aspadana, Middle Persian Spahān, Persian: اصفهان‎ ​), located about 400km south of Tehran, is the capital of Isfahan Province and Iran's third largest city (after Tehran and Mashhad). Its population in 2000 was 2,040,000.
The Naghsh-i Jahan Square in Isfahan has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The city also contains a wide variety of Islamic architectural sites ranging from the 11th century to the 19th.
The beauty of Isfahan inspired jazz musician Duke Ellington and his collaborator Billy Strayhorn to write a song in its name, as part of The Far East Suite.
