Isfahan is located in central Iran, around 400 kilometers south of the capital Tehran at an altitude of 1500 meters in a river oasis in the fertile valley of the Zayandeh Rud river on the edge of the Zagros Mountains.
Naqsh-e Jahan Square, which is the second-largest square in the world after the Tiananmen in Beijing, is worth seeing. It used to be used as a polo field. The Lotfullah Mosque and Imam Mosque are well worth seeing.
The bridges Si-o-Se Pol and Pol-e Khaju are actually considered to be other outstanding sights, but these are currently a rather sad sight, as the Zayande Rud has almost dried up, apparently for several years due to a dispute between Isfahan and Yazd provinces over the water.
The gardens around the Chehel Sotun Palace and the Hasht Behesht Palace invite you to relax.
