|Serie||Taking a look at... (World Series)|
Iran, formerly Persia, has a centuries-old history and a rich culture dating back to long before the first century. Most of the country consists of wild deserts and rugged mountain ranges, apart from the fertile regions on the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf. Many ethnic groups, including nomads, live in Iran. Besides speaking their ethnic language, all Iranians speak Farsi, the country’s official language. Since the dawn of time, Iranians have cherished poetry and storytelling and tea rooms are the favourite places for these traditional pastimes. Iranians are hospitable, creative and artistic people. Iran is a beautiful country with its varied landscapes and surprising cities.
